The trailer for Sai Pallavi’s upcoming film Karu (Foetus) wastes no time in explaining its title. “Abortion is the expulsion of a foetus before it is able to survive independently,” the screen reads as a woman weeps and asks her mother for forgiveness.

Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, Karu is a supernatural thriller that centres on abortion. The bilingual film will be released in Telugu as Kanam.

Starring Sai Pallavi, Naga Shourya and Nizhalgal Ravi, the film has been directed by Vijay. The release date is yet to be announced.
