Kaithi 2 to commence after Thalapathy 67, SR Prabhu confirms
The film's producer, SR Prabhu has now given an update about the progress of the film
The massive success of Vikram has increased the anticipation for filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj's forthcoming projects as the 'Lokesh Cinematic Universe' continues to expand. While it is already known that a sequel to Lokesh's sophomore film, the hit 2019 actioner, Kaithi, starring Karthi, is on the cards, the film's producer, SR Prabhu has now given an update about the progress of the film.
While responding to a fan's question during a recent Twitter Spaces session, the producer shared that work on Kaithi 2 will commence after Lokesh completes his next, Thalapathy 67, which marks the filmmaker's second collaboration with Vijay after Master. The producer went on to add that the sequel will be made on a much bigger scale.
Although Vikram and Kaithi are set in the same universe, it remains unknown whether new characters introduced in Vikram such as Rolex (played by Suriya) will be making an appearance in Kaithi 2. Lokesh has also stated in a recent interview that the sequel will explore the protagonist Dilli's past as well. Considering the nascency of the project, details related to the film are currently under tight wraps.
