Chennai: Veteran actor Karthik and his son Gautham Karthik are set to share screen space for the first time in a yet-untitled upcoming Tamil film, it was announced on Sunday.
To be directed by Thiru, the project will explore the relationship between a father and son.
Karthik and Gautham will be seen playing father and son.
"It's a story that explores the relationship between a father and son. I'm making Karthik sir and Gautham play father-son. It's set in a middle-class household. While Gautham plays a boxer, Karthik sir will be seen as a government employee," Thiru told IANS.
Gautham is thrilled about the project, but he is slightly nervous to act alongside his father.
"I have never been nervous to act with anyone. Since it's going to be my father and we are working together for the first time, I'm nervous as well as excited. So far, we have kept our careers separate, but we will be observing each other from close quarters," Gautham said.
Basking in the success of his latest Tamil outing Hara Hara Mahadevaki, Gautham says the father-son bond will be the highlight of the film.
"The film has action but the biggest highlight will be the relationship I will share with my father. I'm thrilled about this project. I recently returned after training for three weeks in Bangkok to play a boxer. I can't wait to start shooting for this project," he added.
To be produced by G. Dhananjayan's Creative Entertainers and Distributors, the project will roll from November.
