The younger son of actor Sivakumar, Karthi holds a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master's degree in Industrial Engineering. Since he had always wanted to become a film director, he returned to India and joined Mani Ratnam as an assistant director. He was offered acting roles and made his acting debut in Paruthiveeran in 2007 as the titular character, a careless village rowdy, winning critical acclaim and several accolades including the Filmfare Award for Best Actor and a Tamil Nadu State Film Award. His next role was that of a coolie in Aayirathil Oruvan (2010), a fantasy-adventure film directed by Selvaraghavan. He achieved consecutive commercial successes with his subsequent releases - Paiyaa (2010), Naan Mahaan Alla (2010) and Siruthai (2011), which established him in the Tamil film industry. Apart from his film career, Karthi has also been involved in social welfare activities, encouraging fans to do likewise through the "Makkal Nala Mandram", a social welfare club that he inaugurated. In 2011, he became a cause ambassador to promote awareness of lysosomal storage disease.

Actor Karthi and director Lingusamy, who last worked together in the romantic thriller Paiyya, are all set to team up again. The film, titled Enni Yezhu Naal, is expected to go on floors by August this year.
A source tells us, "Karthi and Lingusamy have shared a comfortable equation ever since they worked together in Paiyya, which proved to be an important film in their careers. They've been constantly in touch and have discussed scripts. They met a few days ago and finalized this subject."
While Lingusamy remained unavailable for comment, his brother, and co-producer Subash Chandra Bose, confirms the news to us.
"Lingusamy had already narrated the story of Enni Yezhu Naal to Karthi, and both were inclined to work together on this subject. This one will be a romantic action entertainer, and we will begin shooting for this film from August. By then, Karthi would have completed his film with Ranjith, and Lingusamy would have wrapped up Anjaan with Suriya. While we are yet to finalize the rest of the cast and crew, we are in talks with Samantha to play the female lead."
