After Maanagaram and Kaithi, director Lokesh Kanagaraj is currently directing a film starring Vijay, tentatively titled Thalapathy 64.
Recently, it was revealed that he would join hands with Karthi once again for Kaithi-2. And now, there is an update that he would do a film with Suriya too.
The film has been titled Irumbhu Kai Mayavai, sources say. The film will go on floors probably sometime next year, add sources.
Tipped to be a fantasy action-adventur, Irumbukkai Maayavi is expected to go on floors in May 2020 and official announcement is expected in the first quarter of the new year.
Primarily the superhero character was based on England as the “The Steel Claw.” But it was a bigger hit in Tamil Nadu than in its original version.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai recently, Karthi revealed that talks for a sequel to Kaithi are well underway. “Lokesh called me just last night and asked for just 30 days to finish Kaithi 2”, Karthi said.
Lokesh, who is now directing Vijay for a film tentatively titled Thalapathy 64, tweeted: “Thanx for the overwhelming response guys,.. loved every minute in sets and the entire process of making kaithi…will cherish this forever! Thank you once again prabu sir and karthi sir for the opportunity!..To answer all your txts and calls yes“ Dilli will be back”.”
‘Dilli’ is Karthi’s character in the movie, a prisoner who is looking to meet his daughter, when gangsters are chasing him down. It may be noted that the shooting of the first film was finished in record time.
