Karuppan is a 2017 Indian Tamil-language action drama film written and directed by R. Panneerselvam, starring Vijay Sethupathi, Bobby Simha and Tanya in the leading roles. The film began production during January 2017 and released on 29 September 2017.


Kathir (Bobby Simha) has an interest for Anbuselvi (Tanya), but due to family situations, she gets hitched to Karuppan (Vijay Sethupathi). What does Kathir do to separate Karuppan and Anbu, and does he finally get to marry Anbu? [1]



After the production of Naan Thaan Siva was postponed as a result of Thirrupathi Brothers' financial problems, R. Panneerselvam announced in September 2016 that he would collaborate with Vijay Sethupathi for a film.[2] Produced by A. M. Rathnam, the team approached Keerthy Suresh to play the lead role later that month, but the actress did not sign the project owing to schedule clashes.[3] Ritika Singh was initially signed on to play the lead role, but was later replaced by Lakshmi Menon before production had begun.[4] Lakshmi Menon later pulled out of the film citing an injury and was replaced by Tanya. Bobby Simha agreed to play the antagonist in the film, despite earlier opting to star only in leading roles.[5]

Following a launch event held in December 2016, the team began filming sequences in Theni during January 2017.[6] The motion poster of this film is planned to release on 13 July 2017.[7] Its reported that, due to indefinite strike announced by Film Employees Federation of South India, Karuppan team is waiting to film few portions of the movie.[8].The satellite rights of the film were bagged by Sun TV (India),[9].


Kaathan, the owner of the bull, which is used in the first look poster has reported that, the producers of this movie has not got his permission to use Komban's picture (bull's name is Komban). He has also said that, his Komban has not been tamed by anyone so far and the bull has huge fan following for that reason. Now Kaathan is demanding an unconditional apology from the director, producer and the protagonist. The problem was solved after Vijay Sethupathi met Kaathan.[10]


The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sun TV (India).[11]
