Actor Karthi recently took to Twitter to pen an emotional note in which he’s said he never expected the overwhelming response for his latest release Kaithi, which has minted over Rs50 crore in gross earnings at the box office.

Even though released alongside Vijay’s Bigil (2019), the Lokesh Kanagaraj film Kaithi went on to stun audiences as well as critics alike. Its phenomenal performance at the ticket windows has stunned the trade.

Buoyed by the response to the film, Karthi took to Twitter and wrote: “I don’t know if I can thank you all enough for the amount of love and appreciation you have given for Kaithi. We set out to present an exciting story and our team put their heart into it. But we never expected such an overwhelming response. I take a big bow with gratitude."

In Kaithi, Karthi plays a prisoner on parole to meet his daughter he has never seen. When he crosses paths with a cop, he’s forced to join forces with him and fight the drug lords who are after a cocaine consignment in police custody. The entire story unfolds in a single night within a span of four hours.

Produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the film also stars Arjun Das, Harish Uthaman and George Maryam in crucial roles.

Following the tremendous response for Kaithi, Lokesh took to Twitter last week to thank audience for the response. He also confirmed a sequel is in the making.

“Thanks for the overwhelming response guys. Loved every minute in sets and the entire process of making Kaithi. Will cherish this forever! Thank you once again Prabhu sir and Karthi sir for the opportunity! To answer all your texts and calls, yes, Dilli will be back,” Lokesh tweeted.
