The sequel of '16', 'Narakasuran' was also supposed to hit the screens in Telugu but because of some reasons, the Telugu release got cancelled. Now, Karthik Naren is all set to come up with his next project. Titled as 'Mafia', Arun Vijay is playing the lead role in this movie. The audience are commenting that Mafia is going to be the Tamil 'KGF' and just like the Kannada film, 'Mafia' is also going to be made as a series. 'Mafia chapter 1' is going to be an investigative thriller with heroism. Justifying the genre as well as the title, the movie is also going to have the Mafia backdrop and Arun Vijay is going to play the role of a sincere cop in this film.
The recently released first look poster of the movie has been receiving positive response from the audience. The combination of Arun Vijay and Karthik Naren itself has been increasing the expectations on the movie.
