After his debut film Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru became a hit among audiences as well as critics, young director Karthick Naren went on to be hailed as the next big thing to come from the Tamil film industry.

Fast forward to 2018, Karthick Naren is currently working on his upcoming next, Naragasooran, starring Arvind Swami, Shriya Saran, Sundeep Kishan, Aathmika and Indrajith Sukumaran.

In the meantime, last week saw the young filmmaker announce on his Twitter page his third film titled Naadaga Medai with production set to begin by the middle of the year.

That said, latest reports now indicate Karthick Naren is planning to rope in actor Gautham Karthik as one of the film’s leads. It must be noted his performance in the recent Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren was widely lauded by fans and critics.

In addition, Malayalam superstar Jayaram’s son, Kalidas Jayaram, who has starred in a couple of Tamils with one of them awaiting a release is also said to be in the fray for a role in Naadaga Medai, which will reportedly tell a story on how modern youngsters view the present-day society.

Actor Parthiepan too is said to be in contention for a vital role in Naadaga Medai and an official statement on the film’s casting is expected to be made in the coming days.
