Gautham Karthik is the son of the popular actor Karthik Muthuraman. He was born in the year 1989 to Karthik and Ragini Karthik in Chennai. His mother Ragini was also an actress. Gautham did his schooling in Ooty and he completed his graduation in Christ University in Bangalore. Gautham has two brothers Ghayn and Thiran.

Until Mani Ratnam approached Karthik to introduce his son to the cinema industry, Karthik has no idea about this and even Gautham too. Karthik discussed with his family and agreed to introduce Gautham to the film industry through Mani Ratnam. Karthik made his debut along with Radha and similarly Gautham Karthik was introduced with Radha’s daughter Tulasi Nair in Mani Ratnam’s Kadal.

This film was an average film. After this movie, Gautham acted in Yennamo Yedho and this film was also an average movie; but Gautham was credited as a good actor. Next project of Gautham came in the form of Aishwarya R. Dhanush’s movie. Aishwarya’s second directorial movie was Vai Raja Vai and in this film, Gautham played opposite Priya Anand. Pia did an excellent character in the movie Vai Raja Vai with Gautham. Though this movie was not a commercial success, the performance of Gautham and Pia was criticized well. Gautham’s next movies are Sippai, Indrajith and Rangoon.

Aadukalam Naren

Aadukalam Naren was born in Chennai the heartland of Tamil cinema, in a family which took keen interest in movies. He was interested in acting and was also encouraged by his family members, and so he decided to go through formal training before he could enter the industry. In fact he was originally christened Narayan, but as was the prevailing practice he abbreviated it to Naren, and that was the name by which he came to be well known. He received his formal training in acting and dancing from Kala, who was then one of the more accomplished trainers for aspiring artists. Naren himself went on to become an acting teacher himself. Soon after, he was successful in making his entry into films through “Raman Abdullah”released in 1997. The next few years saw him acting in largely inconsequential films as far as his film career was concerned. He did, however, did take part in this period, in BaluMahendra’s reasonably successful TV serial “KathaiNeram”However, not until 2011 could he really make a mark in the film industry, although he was acknowledged as a good actor. It was through director Vetrimaaran’s “Aadukalam”that he really caught the audience’sattention and got lauded for his role. In fact, along with his other contemporary, Murugadoss, this film changed the career path of both, so much so that they both decided to add the prefix “Aadukalam” to their names. He had a reasonably successful and consistent run for the next few years, playing several character roles. He was specially appreciated for his portrayal of the hero, Sasikumar’s father in the 2012 starrer “Sundarapandian”. He, however, did not break his links with Tamil TV, having featured in serials “Kana KaanumKaalangal” andSivamayam, in between.The future line up also seems promising for Naren, with films like “InnimeyIppadithan”, “Vaalu” and “Malupu” in 2015.
