Lokesh Kanagaraj is one of the sensational upcoming directors in Tamil. A bank-employee-turned short filmmaker from Coimbatore, Lokesh made his directorial debut with Maanagaram, an action thriller starring Sundeep Kishan and Regina Cassandra in 2017. The next year, he directed Karthi.
His two films Maanagaram and Kaithi, were successful critically as well as commercially. He is now waiting for the release of the third one which is Master starring Vijay. Lokesh next moves to Vikram which has Kamal Haasan in the lead.
Post as one can understand with the line-up, Lokesh Kanagaraj is a red hot commodity. The demand is high for him. In Telugu too, he has been apparently locked for a project by Mythri Movie Makers. The question is when it will happen and with whom?
He said that he is in talks with Ram Charan for a movie, though nothing has been finalized. Only after the final script is ready and Ram Charan okays it, the project will take off. He also stated that he would start other movies, only after he completes Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan.
