Karthi who flew into dizzying renown with his latest release Oopiri will soon start preparing for his Tamil-Telugu-Hindi film, a romantic drama about a pilot and a dancer.
For the role Karthi will actually learn how to fly a plane.
Says a source very close to the project, “There are reports flying around that Karthi has already started training to fly a plane. Not yet. He is busy with another project. As soon as he is done he will immediately start training for Mani Sir’s film and yes, he will actually learn to fly a plane.”
Karthi will also be put through rigorous workshops with his co-star Aditi Rao Hydari who is learning Tamil for her role.
Says the source, “It isn’t decided yet whether Aditi will dub her own lines in Tamil. But she has been briefed by Mani Sir to know the language so that she can feel the emotions. Mani Sir also wants her to attend rehearsals and workshops with Karthi so that they look comfortable in the romantic scenes.Both Karthi and Aditi are shy people. They need to get to know one another before shooting starts.”
