The next movie starring Vijay, according to Lokesh Kanagaraj, will be a part of his cinematic world.
Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj is getting ready to start production on his upcoming Tamil movie, officially titled Thalapathy 67. Lokesh addressed whether or not the gangster movie, which will mark his reunion with actor Vijay, will be a part of the larger cinematic universe he is creating.
The Lokesh Cinematic Universe, sometimes known as LCU, debuted with Vikram, which featured characters from Lokesh’s Kaithi. His film with Vijay won’t be a part of LCU, despite recent rumours to the contrary. He explained it at the premiere of the upcoming Tamil film Laththi’s trailer.
I can’t discuss about the project right now, Lokesh stated when speaking to reporters during the ceremony. But I can guarantee that it won’t be a component of the cosmos. It will be a mobster movie, but I won’t be able to reveal further details until Varisu is out. Vijay will soon release Varisu. This Sankranti festival, it will be released.
Lokesh previously discussed ambitions for expanding his film universe using actors from his own films when speaking with Film Companion. It would be Vikram 2 and Kaithi 2, he had claimed. Probably also Rolex. Yes, a universe exists. Thus, you have the opportunity to work on a variety of films. Depending on the character you choose, you can create a prequel or sequel. I’m set for the next ten years.”
After the huge commercial success of his Tamil film Kaithi, in which Karthi played a prisoner released on parole to visit his daughter, Lokesh became well-known. But when he teams up with the police following a significant drug arrest, his life takes an unexpected turn when he encounters a local criminal gang.
His most recent film, Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan, became one of Tamil cinema’s biggest hits, grossing more over 400 crores worldwide. In the movie, Kamal played a former spy who seeks revenge for the loss of his kid.
Apart from Suriya as Rolex, Karthi’s role from Kaithi was featured in Vikram. In Kaithi 2, Suriya’s Rolex and Karthi will square off, and both actors are anticipated to appear in Vikram’s follow-up.
In a few weeks, Lokesh’s new movie opposite Vijay is anticipated to begin production. Sanjay Dutt and Trisha have significant roles in the movie as well. Anirudh has been enlisted to write the soundtrack.
