Ever since acting as “Kannapiran” in “Karnan”, actor/cinematographer Nataraj who is popularly known as “Natti”, has been receiving comments from fans, regarding the role he played in the Dhanush-starrer. Recently, the actor uploaded a picture of himself getting his first shot of vaccine and suggested his followers to do the same in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Now, on seeing the enormous number of comments about the character he played in the film, Natti uploaded a tweet asking fans to comment through their original accounts instead of posting abusive tweets from fake twitter handles.
Karnan’s plot revolves around a fearless youngster fighting against the influential people who are oppressing his people through various ways. The period film which is set in the suburbs of Tirunelveli district, talks about the struggles faced by the people who belong to a small village named “Podiyankulam”. The film which completed its theatrical run due to the COVID 19 outbreak, recently released in Amazon prime and a large number of Tamil fans watched the film for the first time through the OTT platform.
With Dhanush playing the titular character, actors such as Lal, Natty, Lakshmi Priya, Sujithra Vijayan, Gouri Kishan played the supporting roles. Natty who is known among mainstream audience for the role he played in “Sathuranga Vettai” as a con artist, appeared as a deadly villain in “Karnan”. Named as “Kannapiran”, Natty came in as a polluted cop who is obsessed with caste pride.
In one of the scenes, he could be seen beating the old men of “Podiyankulam” village for their names. The actor received accolades from the audience and critics for the performance he pulled off. However, a number of people who watched the film has been abusing the actor personally but he has been receiving all kind of comments with his whole heart.
