We had earlier reported that Karthi, who is all set to start shooting for Maanagaram-director Lokesh Kanagaraj's action thriller, has signed one more film with Bakkiyaraj Kannan, who made his directorial debut with Sivakarthikeyan's Remo. 

Now, it has been made official that Rashmika Mandanna, who was seen in three Telugu films including the much-celebrated Geetha Govindam last year, has been signed to play the female lead opposite Karthi in this yet-to-be-titled film. Bankrolled by SR Prabhu's Dream Warrior pictures, this film will have music by Vivek - Mervin, the composer duo who had scored for Gulaebaghavali and Mohini last year.  The family entertainer, also starring Yogi Babu and Mansoor Ali Khan, was launched today with a pooja function.

Rashmika, meanwhile, has Yajamana, Pogaru in Kannada and Dear Comrade, Bheeshma in Telugu in different stages of production. Karthi's film with Bakkiyaraj Kannan will be, in all probability, her Tamil debut. Karthi, on the other hand, had Dev, directed by debutant Rajath Ravishankar, hitting the theatres last week.
