Director Karthick Naren, 22, is elated after being appreciated by “Baahubali” star Rana Daggubati for his Tamil whodunit thriller “Dhuruvangal 16”.
The movie, which marked Karthick’s directorial debut and is having a dream run in cinemas, has impressed critics and audiences alike.
In a Facebook post, he wrote: “‘I haven’t seen the film yet. But the kind of reviews I have been hearing are amazing. So thought of inviting you home and congratulate’. These words from Rana Daggubati Sir are special.”
Karthick also shared an image where he is seen posing with Rana.
The film, which stars Rahman in the lead, revolves around a murder investigation and features 16 key characters.
Currently in its fifth week in cinemas, the film has emerged successful despite the onslaught of superstar Vijay’s Tamil action-drama “Bairavaa”.
From filmmaker A.R. Murugadoss to Gautham Vasudev Menon, stalwarts of the Tamil film fraternity have heaped praise on the film and the young director.
It is being dubbed in Telugu as “16” and will be remade in Hindi.
