Sometimes, one hit film makes an actor popular, a story actor Kartikeya may seem to be familiar with. His debut film, Prematho Mee Karthik went almost unnoticed, but his second film RX 100 turned into a big hit, making Kartikeya an overnight sensation. Offers poured in, and he released four films. The problem, however, was that none of those films tasted the success of RX 100. According to a source, a few people around Kartikeya are encouraging him to take on such films and roles. “One distributor is always with Kartikeya, praising him for just about anything. He is also always present when a director narrates a story to Kartikeya. And he forces the actor to do the film even though he doesn’t have enough knowledge to judge it,” says the source.
With all the unprecedented praises coming his way, Kartikeya may have begun to believe he has made it to the top already and that he doesn’t have to focus on the story. But the results of his films are showing another story.
