On Monday, the first look poster for Karthi’s next film, Japan, was released. The poster depicts Karthi in an unusual avatar, implying that his character has a penchant for luxury

Karthi is seen in the poster resting on his couch after what appears to be a wild party. Behind him is a gold-dressed portrait of himself. He wields a gold-plated machine gun on one hand and a blingy 3D model of the globe on the other. Karthi’s character appears to have grandiose delusions.
