"We are currently shooting the second schedule of the film in Kumbakonam. Karthi will celebrate his birthday on the sets with the entire crew... and we have planned for a small party for him in the evening," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Back home, in Chennai, members of Karthi's fans' club plan to celebrate by indulging in some charity. "We are planning for charitable events such as blood donation camp and distributing books to underprivileged school children," said a member of the club.
Paired opposite Kajal Aggarwal, Karthi has pinned all hopes on the film. He hopes it will resurrect his dwindling career. With two back-to-back flops such as Saguni and Alex Pandian, Karthi, brother of actor Suriya Sivakumar, hopes AIAAR will catapult him back to stardom.
Rajesh M is directing the film, which also features Santhanam, Prabhu and Saranya Ponvannan. Karthi is also simultaneously shooting for Tamil romantic-comedy Biriyani.
