We have seen many a father-son duo sharing screen space like Sivaji & Prabhu and Karthik & Gautham Karthik. But, for the first time in the history of K'town, a hero will be teaming up with his actress sister-in-law in a Tamil movie. And it is none other than Karthi, brother of Suriya.
Karthi, basking in the success of his last outing Kaithi and his sis-in-law Jyotika will be playing siblings in a film, which has also got a title now. Directed by Jeetu Joseph, the movie is titled Thambi.
