    Karthick: Hope to be back with a bang

    Monday, May 17, 2004
    As the son of a popular actor, he made his debut in the Tamil film industry about two decades ago in Alaigal Oivathillai. Introduced by Bharathiraja, Karthick , son of yesteryear star Muthuraman, went on to take center- stage with movies like Ninaivellam Nithya, Nallavanuku Nallavan, Varsham 16, Kizhakku Vasal, Gopura Vasalilae, Agni Natchathiram, Nadodi Thendral and Ullathai Ali Tha.

    Considered as a chocolate box hero in the early 80s, he received many an award including the Best New Face in 1980, Salamanca Award and the State government Award for Best Actor. However, this actor seems to have lost his way over the last few years. His habits landed him in trouble. Almost after a year of hibernation, he is back with his new venture Manadhil. Asked on his come back, he says ''I am back to what I know is the best. I enjoy standing before the camera now. I will certainly bounce back''. ''To err is human. I am no God, I have committed some errors to which I now admit'', he said candidly.

    Why such big gap in tinsel town?

    I am not sure. Any way, I don't want to look back and I'd rather look for a better tomorrow. Because I am a confident man expecting a change in fortune.

    About your forthcoming film 'Manadhil'?

    It's a good film in which I play a dual role that of a hero and a villain. I have given my best. Doing the negative role was quite difficult but I think I have done justice to it. I should thank director Mahesh and producer C K Shanmugam for reposing faith in me and making me do the role. Acting opposite to me is Kausalya. The movie is almost complete and would be ready for release soon.

    What about the other movies you were acting in the last couple of years?

    The work on Kashmir is almost over and is about to hit theatres. In Kadhalae Suvasam (title changed to Dhil Ruba), I play a guest role. I have completed all my shots and am eagerly waiting for the release.

    Will you be doing negative roles?

    I don't mind it all. I am ready for it as along as I have enough scope.

    Your future plans........

    I want to keep myself fit. I go for a walk and do silambam everyday to keep myself agile. I am feeling fresh. I would be able to adapt to changing times now, seek good roles and perform well.
