Lokesh Kanagaraj, who made a splashing debut with ‘Maanagaram’ and is currently occupied with Karthi-starrer ‘Kaidhi’, seems to have bagged a biggie. Yes, he is tipped to be director of Vijay’s next film.
“Vijay, who is currently shooting for his 63rd film with director Atlee, listened scripts from a few directors for his 64th movie. Among them, he has finalised the one narrated by Lokesh,” sources said.
Stating that it was an action entertainer loaded with mass elements, sources added Vijay liked it instantly and decided to give his nod to be part of the project. “A formal announcement is expected to be made soon,” they said further.
Meanwhile, the shooting of ‘Thalapathy-63’ is expected to be wrapped up soon. “Major parts have already been shot and only few portions are left to be canned,” sources said. The film produced by AGS Entertainment has music by Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman. Nayanthara is the heroine.
