Lokesh Kanagaraj gives an EXTENSIVE update on Vijay’s film.
He has only four films under his belt, but filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj has captured everyone’s attention with back-to-back blockbusters starring Thalapathy Vijay and Kamal Haasan. Lokesh’s collaboration with Vijay, tentatively titled Thalapathy 67, is unstoppable. While spectators are eager to find out what’s in store for them, Lokesh stated during a recent press conference that it will be a gangster film.
One of his admirers inquired about the status of his work on a gangster genre. When are you going to direct that? “Script?” a fan inquired during the event, to which Lokesh replied, “I will be directing that gangster story next.” Lokesh Kanagaraj reportedly wrote this script initially for superstar Rajinikanth. However, there has been no formal confirmation from the actor. Previously, the director was cited at a function as saying that Thalapathy 67 will be a mix of mass and class.
Meanwhile, Vijay is in Hyderabad filming Thalapathy 66, directed by Vamshi Paidipally. The much-anticipated film, produced by Sri Venkateswara Creations, stars Rashmika Mandanna as the female protagonist, with Sarath Kumar, Shaam, Prabhu, Sangeetha, Prakash Raj, and Jayasudha also playing important parts. The creators have declared that it would be released on Pongal 2023.
