After graduating, he worked as an engineering consultant in Chennai and considered higher education abroad. “I earned about ₹ 5,000 per month and found the work was monotonous, and that’s when I thought I should do something more,” he said in an interview.

Karthi is the second son of actor Sivakumar and his wife Lakshmi. He has two brothers and sisters; an older brother, Suriya, who was already an established actor at the time of Karthi’s film debut, and a younger sister named Brindha. Tamil film actress Jyothika is Karthi’s sister-in-law. On July 3, 2011, Karthi married Ranjani Chinnaswamy, who holds a Master’s degree in English Literature from Stella Maris College in Chennai.
