Lokesh Kanagaraj is one of the most sought-after filmmakers of the contemporary Tamil cinema. The talented filmmaker is all set to release his ambitious project Master which features Vijay in the lead role, once lockdown ends and theaters reopen. In a recent interview, Lokesh slammed the rumours which suggested that he might make his Hindi cinema debut soon.
Recently, it was rumoured that Lokesh Kanagaraj will soon make his Bollywood debut with the remake of his blockbuster outing Kaithi. The filmmaker rubbished the reports and suggest that he is not directing the Hindi remake of Kaithi, which is expected to star Ajay Devgn in the lead role. Lokesh is planning to solely concentrate on Tamil cinema for now.
However, the young director confirmed that a sequel is on cards for Kaithi, and he might reunite with actor Karthi for the project. Lokesh Kanagaraj's confirmation has totally excited the Tamil cinema audiences and fans of Karthi, who are eagerly waiting for the sequel of the blockbuster action thriller. An official announcement on the project is expected to be made, once things are finalised between the director and lead actor.
Coming back to Master, the highly anticipated action thriller will mark Lokesh Kanagaraj's first collaboration with both Thalapathy Vijay and talented actor Vijay Sethupathi. The movie, which features Vijay in the titular role, will have Sethupathi playing the lead antagonist. Master, which was originally supposed to hit the theaters in April 2020, is now pushed indefinitely due to the coronavirus threat.
Interestingly, Lokesh Kanagaraj is also reportedly roped in to helm the highly anticipated upcoming Rajinikanth starrer, which will be produced by Kamal Haasan. The sources suggest that both the superstar and ulaganayakan are highly impressed with the young filmmaker's previous works, and are eagerly waiting to team up with him for a project.
