We're less than a week away from the grand theatrical release of 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's Vikram coming out in cinemas worldwide on June 3. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and featuring music by Anirudh Ravichander, the upcoming action thriller also stars 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi and Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil in pivotal roles, while Suriya is making a cameo appearance alongside an ensemble supporting cast. With promotions underway for Vikram, Rathna Kumar, who served as the dialogue writer for Vikram with Lokesh Kanagaraj, has now in an exclusive interview spoken in detail about the process of the making of the Kamal Haasan-starrer, while also shedding light on the plans for the tentatively titled Thalapathy 67

Rathna, who had earlier written the story, screenplay, and dialogues for Vijay's Master with Lokesh Kanagaraj, has revealed that he will once again be teaming up with the blockbuster duo to be a part of Thalapathy 67. Upon being asked about his association with Vijay's next after Thalapathy 66, which is currently being directed by Vamshi Paidipally, Rathna stated, "The audience will get an idea about Thalapathy 67 after Vikram's release. As far as Thalapathy 67 goes, we are not discussing much at this point." When queried about the kind of film Thalapathy 67 will be, Rathna added, "Both (Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj) are clear that there's an important reason for them to team up this time. It will be more dynamic (உக்ரம்) thank Vikram."

There has been tremendous buzz surrounding Thalapathy 67 ever since the release of Master after it was revealed that Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj could be joining hands once again. As of now, no other names or a production banner has been revealed to be a part of the project and all sights are set for that elusive announcement, which is expected to be out as Thalapathy 66 reaches its completion. On the other hand, Rathna Kumar has directed films like Meyaadha Maan and Aadai, and is awaiting the release of his next titled Gulu Gulu in June, which has Santhanam in the lead role.
