Kamal Haasan hints about teaming up with Lokesh Kanagraj!
Two-film old Lokesh Kanagaraj is already knocking the doors of Kollywood’s top league of filmmakers. After making an impressive debut with ‘Maanagaram’, he delivered a huge blockbuster last year with ‘Kaithi’. He is now working on ‘Master’, a real biggie starring Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi in the leads.
Last day, at the Zee Cine Awards, Lokesh was honoured with the Favorite Director of the year award for ‘Kaithi’. He received the award from his idol Kamal Haasan, who was all praise of the young filmmaker. Kamal said that he feels proud about Lokesh for having made a film like ‘Kaithi’. He is quotes saying,
“I feel proud that Lokesh did such a great film like Kaithi and tells that I inspire him. It feels like I myself directed the film. There is something else as well. Will talk about that later.”
Kollywood circles firmly believe that Kamal hinted about teaming up with Lokesh. It is worth a mention that Lokesh is a huge self-confessed Kamal fan. He has often said that it was ‘Virumandi’ that inspired him to make a film like ‘Kaithi’. Reports suggest that the two had met recently to discuss about a project. Kamal’s production house Raaj Kamal International might be producing a new film with Lokesh soon but it is not yet known if Kamal himself will be starring in it.
