Leading Tamil filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj is the man of the hour as he has once again hit the bullseye with his latest film, Vikram, starring 'Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan, 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi, and Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil, including Suriya making a crucial cameo. With the action thriller turning out to be a massive critical and commercial success, all sights are now set on the blockbuster director's next, which is set to be the tentatively titled Thalapathy 67 starring Vijay in the lead role. Buzz is that an announcement on Thalapathy 67 is expected to be made in the days ahead and will mark the second-time collaboration for Lokesh Kanagaraj and Vijay after their 2021 box office money-spinner, Master

Considering the debate on Thalapathy 67 is hot on social networking forums, Lokesh Kanagaraj on Wednesday evening took part in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Twitter where he invited fans to talk about his latest film, Vikram. The filmmaker had been responding to several questions, including one Twitter user who queried the Maanagaram director regarding when his next film's announcement will be made. Lokesh Kanagaraj replied saying, "Very soon Nanba :)", with the term 'Nanba' (friend) sparking instant excitement among Vijay fans, who have since been extending their wishes for the upcoming venture.

As of now, an official announcement on Lokesh Kanagaraj's next, which is strongly speculated to be Thalapathy 67 with Vijay, is awaited and we can expect it to be out soon. That being said, the hit director will also be reuniting with actor Karthi once again for Kaithi 2, the sequel of their 2019 blockbuster Kaithi, which was referenced to quite a large extent on his Vikram with Kamal Haasan, thus confirming the 'Lokesh Cinematic Universe' (similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe where characters from different Marvel Studios films appear together). It is unknown at this point when Lokesh Kanagaraj will be bringing together characters from Kaithi and Vikram for Kaithi 2 / Vikram 3 and the anticipation will no doubt be sky-high and get bigger with the passage of time.
