The well-known Tamil film actor Thalapathy Vijay is reuniting with hitmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj for his 67th film project. After the huge success of Master, the actor-director duo will team up again for the film, which has a working title of Thalapathy 67. The eagerly anticipated movie is a part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, also known as LCU. Lokesh Kanagaraj, the director, created this action-crime thriller universe. The viewers are now extremely thrilled following a new update on the Thalapathy 67 lead cast.
According to recent speculations, famous actors Kamal Haasan and Chiyaan Vikram will join the impressive star ensemble of Thalapathy Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj's ambitious movie. According to rumours, Kamal will play the same role in the eagerly anticipated film, a new entry in the Lokesh Cinematic Universe that will be released in 2022 called Vikram. The legend might make a special appearance during Thalapathy 67's climax scenes, making this their first on-screen pairing.
On the other hand, Chiyaan Vikram is anticipated to portray the main antagonist in Thalapathy 67. Rumor has it that Thalapathy Vijay's movie will introduce Chiyaan's character to the Lokesh Cinematic Universe in a same manner to how Suriya was introduced as the ultimate adversary "Rolex" at the conclusion of the director's last film, Vikram. According to sources, the Ponniyin Selvan actor has already agreed to the terms and has given the movie a 30-day call sheet.
As previously reported, the incredibly brilliant director plans to expand his criminal thriller universe with a number of eagerly awaited projects, most notably sequels and spin-offs. The sequels to both Kaithi and Vikram are in the works, Lokesh Kanagaraj has stated in a number of recent interviews. If everything goes according to plan, Kaithi 2 may begin production right after Thalapathy 67 is released. He will next launch the Vikram 2 production, which will be followed by the Suriya-starring "Rolex" spin-off.
There is a possibility that all of the LCU main characters, including Kamal Haasan, Karthi, and Suriya, as well as Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, Narain, Arjun Das, and others who had significant parts in the previous LCU movies, will appear in all of the next LCU movies. On the other side, Thalapathy 67 is scheduled to make its formal debut on January 26, Thursday.
