Reliable sources in Kollywood tell us that Karthi is now lining up a project with director Rajumurugan, which will be a slice-of-life tale. The film is likely to go on floors by the end of the year once Karthi gets done with his trio of films in Viruman, Ponniyin Selvan and Sardar.

Sources say that Vijay Sethupathi is also in talks to play an important role in the film, with the rest of the cast and crew being firmed up now. More updates on the film will drop closer to release of Sardar.
