Thalapathy Vijay will be joining hands with director Lokesh Kanagaraj for Thalapathy 67 and the fans have pinned high hopes on this mega biggie which is yet to be announced. Though the project is yet to be formally announced, almost all the fans and film buffs know that Lokesh Kanagaraj will be the director of Vijay's next film. That being said, a new video of Lokesh Kanagaraj talking to fans about the project has surfaced on social media, turning viral among the fans. The video has piqued the curiosity of the fans and has made them look forward to the announcement.

Talking at a recent college event, Lokesh Kanagaraj said, "You guys can ask me anything other than the update. I can't talk about it now. You have waited for these many days, so, just hold the patience for a few more days, and the update will reach you. I am not sure about the timeline of the events but very soon, an update will be out". In another video, Lokesh mentioned that whenever the update comes out, it would be a worthy one, requesting the patience of the fans. Going by what Lokesh says, it looks like we can expect the official announcement on Thalapathy 67 to be made this month, but let us wait and keep our fingers crossed.

Lokesh Kanagaraj recently completed the scripting work of the film with directors Rathna Kumar (Meyaadha Maan, Aadai), and Deeraj Vaidy (Jil Jung Juk) and the team is currently busy with other pre production works. According to reports, the film is likely to go on floors by early next year. Thalapathy 67 will be an action-gangster film that will feature an ensemble star cast featuring some of the biggest names in the South Indian film industry. Vijay is currently shooting for Varisu which will be his next outing in Kollywood. Varisu is directed by Vamshi Paidipally and is set for release in January 2023 for Pongal.
