Makers of a Dhanush-starrer revealed the title of their venture in a post on Twitter. Producer Kalaipuli S Thanu announced that the movie is titled 'Karnan'. Soon after the announcement, makers started facing criticism for the title, and president of Sivaji Social Welfare Association, Chandrasekharan penned a letter to Thanu.
He wrote, “We all know that Karnan is legendary Sivaji Ganesan sir's classic film. Now we have come to know that your film with Dhanush is titled as Karnan. It would be great if you could add a prefix or suffix instead of repeating the title of Sivaji's classic film as it hurts the sentiment of ardent fans.”
Released in 1964, 'Karnan' was an iconic film starring Sivaji Ganesan. Meanwhile, the Dhanush-starrer will also feature Mollywood actress Rajisha Vijayan, along with Lal and Yogi Babu. Meanwhile, Dhanush is waiting for the release of 'Pattas', which hit the theatres on January 26.
