There have been various speculations doing the rounds that Karthi and Sathuranga Vettai fame director Vinoth are teaming up for a new project. A source has now confirmed that the plan is still on and that even a 'test shoot' was done recently for the same. "It is true that the yet-to-be-titled film will go on floors from January.
The team did a photo shoot with Karthi to decide about his look for the project," the source informs, adding, "They are in talks with Rakul Preet Singh to play the female lead in it. It is expected that the actress will give a nod to the film soon." Rakul made her film debut in a Kannada film but it was her role in Thadayara Thaakka that made her a noteworthy actress. Though Rakul was expected to return to Kollywood after a while with the Vishal-starrer Thupparivalan, which is being directed by Mysskin, she later opted out of the movie owing to her busy schedule. Meanwhile, there were unconfirmed reports about Karthi playing a police officer in this film; however the source says it is too premature to talk about it
