Amid the global success of Kamal Haasan, Fahadh Faasil, and Vijay Sethupathi starrer Vikram, its director Lokesh Kanagaraj gave a possible hint on Kaithi 2.

Q&A session with Lokesh Kanagaraj

Lokesh Kanagaraj, the director of Vikram, earned himself a name as one of the most sought-after filmmakers in the Tamil film industry after giving back-to-back hits. Recently, he held an Ask Me Anything session titled #AskDirLokesh on Twitter, in which he requested fans to ask questions about the film’s ideas and the future of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe.


Vikram is the immediate sequel of Lokesh’s 2019 film Kaithi starring Karthi in the lead. In this film, Arjun Das appeared as one of the main antagonists ‘Anbu’, he appeared to be dead in the climax scene. However, Arjun made a cameo appearance in Vikram’s climax which has been the talk of the town since the film was released on June 3 as it also features Suriya as the deadly drug dealer Rolex.

Arjun Das’s re-appearance in Vikram

A fan questioned the filmmaker about Arjun Das’s re-appearance in Vikram, as he was supposed to be dead in the Kaithi film. But, Lokesh Kanagaraj revealed that Anbu was never dead, and confirmed that this will be further explained in Kaithi 2.

“Only Anbu’s jaw was broken by Napoleon in #kaithi, hence the stitch mark in #Vikram.. this will be explained further in #kaithi2 #AskDirLokesh,” replied the Vikram director. Lokesh Kanagaraj’s reply came out as a great surprise for the cine-goers and the fans of the filmmaker, who are eagerly waiting for the expansion of his cinematic universe and a crossover between Vikram and Kaithi.


Meanwhile, Arjun Das penned a long note on his single screen appearance in the latest actioner in which he named Kamal Haasan, Suriya, and Lokesh Kanagaraj as his three favorites. His note read, “When Lokesh calls you and says, ‘Machi, just one scene.’ You don’t ask any questions. You just go! But that ONE scene… On one side you have Kamal sir and on the other, you have Suriya sir.”

“What does one possibly do? You tell yourself to breathe, focus, learn, observe, sit back and watch two actors you have admired unleash themselves in front of you. Watching that on the monitor, over and over again, was one of the best experiences of my life. I couldn’t have asked for more. Working with three of my favorites – Kamal sir, Suriya sir, and Lokesh sir”, his message continued.

In Vikram, Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi have put up jaw-dropping performances while Suriya headlines a remarkable cameo. Anirudh held the movie with his Hollywood-style background score while Girish Gangadharan and Philomin Raj showcase their prowess in visuals and cuts. Narain, Arjun Das, and Harish Uthaman have reprised their roles from ‘Kaithi’ in ‘Vikram’.
