As LCU is a topic of discussion online forums, The anchor asked if there are any plans for him to make a Karthik Subbaraj cinematic universe. The director said “See, basically. my idea is I want to make Jigarthanda as a franchise film. The concept of the crime world mixing with the art world. So, it can be anything. Maybe, in 15 to 20 years, this franchise will go on, and other filmmakers also can come and do a film under this crux. So, Jigarthanda should become like a Genre. So it's like two different worlds coming together and how both influence each other. We can have many stories in it."
The director then went on reveal why he did not make a sequel with the character Assault Sethu and added “There are Meta films, It's a movie about making films. Jigarthanda is meta but there is gangster world that is the philosophy in it. Just like that the same philosophy will be in Double X too. But there will be no connection to Jigarthanda. So, wanted to make it as a franchise, as a genre." Watch full interview:
