Blockbuster filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj has announced taking a break from social media to direct his complete attention toward the pre-production work of his next project, Thalaivar 171, starring 'Superstar' Rajinikanth and featuring 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander for the music. The hit Tamil director made the big announcement on X on Saturday, December 16, stating that he won't be available on social media and his mobile phone while extending his gratitude to the fans for their heartwarming response to the action thriller film, Fight Club, his debut presentation. Sharing a note, Lokesh Kanagaraj also requested fans to take care of themselves, while urging them to stay positive at all times and ignore all forms of negativity. 

Lokesh Kanagaraj's note is as follows: 


Firstly, I would like to extend my thanks to all of you for the love and support you have given for 'Fight Club' which was the maiden presentation under my banner G Squad, and I will always be grateful for it. 

I am writing to announce that I will be taking a break from all social media platforms and my mobile to solely focus on my next project. During this time, I will not be reachable. 

I would like to again thank the audience for all the love and support you have showered upon me since my debut. 

Until then, take care, all of you. Stay Positive and Ignore Negativity! 

Much Love, Lokesh Kanagaraj".

This is the third time Lokesh Kanagaraj will be taking a break from social media after he first took a short sabbatical before the release of Vikram (2022) starring 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, among others. He also took a break before he began production on 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Leo, which has turned out to be a massive box office success. Lokesh Kanagaraj's latest statement will no doubt come as disappointing news to some, but a large section of fans will be looking forward to seeing him make a big return with Thalaivar 171 updates soon. Apart from his film with Rajinikanth, the Leo director will continue working on the films in the Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU), which includes the highly-anticipated Kaithi 2 with Karthi, a standalone project centered around the character Rolex played by Suriya in Vikram, and Vikram 2 with Kamal Haasan once again. Whether Lokesh Kanagaraj will make Leo 2 is unknown at this point and it now remains to be seen when Vijay will say yes to appearing in a sequel as stated by the director himself at the Leo success meet back in November.
