LCU Movies for the next ’10 Years’; Lokesh Kanagaraj gives a ‘Tiny Hint’ about his plans

Tamil filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj who is known for his action thrillers including Kaithi, Master, Vikram, and others has shared some interesting details about his upcoming projects with Kamal Haasan, Suriya, and many others.


Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj has opened up about his plans for creating his film universe with characters from his own movies such as Kaithi and Vikram. Talking about the prospect of making more films based on popular characters as part of his film universe, he said that he is settled for the upcoming decade.


On being asked about how he plans to make the other installments as part of the LCU, Lokesh told Film Companion, “It’s going to be Vikram 2 and Kaithi 2. Probably Rolex as well. It’s a universe, right? So, you have the privilege of doing all kinds of films. You can make a prequel or sequel on whichever character you want. For the next 10 years, I’m settled.”

Major characters in LCU

His last release Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil emerged as one of the biggest blockbusters of Tamil cinema with over Rs 400 crore in gross earnings globally. The film also featured Karthi’s character from Kaithi apart from Suriya as Rolex. Suriya’s Rolex will lock horns with Karthi in Kaithi 2 and both of them are expected to be part of the Vikram sequel.


Lokesh is gearing up to commence work on his next yet-untitled Tamil project with Thalapathy Vijay. The new film is expected to take off in a few weeks. It is pitched to be another high-octane action movie.


Contrary to recent rumors, his film with Vijay won’t be part of LCU. He clarified it on Monday at the trailer launch event of the upcoming Tamil film, Laththi. Speaking to journalists at the event, Lokesh, “I can’t talk about the project now. But I can say that it won’t be part of the universe.”
