The movie made a remarkable record at the box office. Then, he has done three films – “Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga”, “Ethir Neechal” and “Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam”.

All the films had performed very well and had made good collections at the box office, especially “Ethir Neechal” and “Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam” were super hit movies in his account. Giving another super hit through his next film “Maan Karate” will surely add a lot of credit to his kitty.

Released on April 4 around 650 screens worldwide, “Maan Karate” is a romantic, fantasy entertainer that has all commercial elements. Directed by new director Thirukumaran, the movie has Sivakarthikeyan playing Royapuram Peter, a boy from North Madras.
