Director Lokesh Kanagaraj gained more stardom after he established a proper cinematic universe in Tamil cinema by crossing over the characters from his previous film 'Kaithi' in 'Vikram'. The young director also linked the story to Kamal Haasan's 1986 film of the same name.

As 'Vikram' emerged as an industry hit, the hype for his next project skyrocketed even before the official announcement. It is almost confirmed that Lokesh Kanagaraj will be reuniting with his 'Master' team Vijay and Seven Screen Studio for 'Thalapathy 67'. The fans and media have been churning over the question of whether 'Thalapathy 67' will join the Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU).

In a recent interview, Lokesh Kanagaraj neither denied nor confirmed the speculation. When asked if 'Thalapathy 67' will be a part of LCU, he said that he would answer it once an official announcement is made by the production house regarding the upcoming movie. This news is currently rocking social media. He also added that 'Master' is a standalone film in his filmography and it won't have a follow-up.

Thalapathy 67 is likely to go on the floors by October and the project is touted to be a gangster drama. A source close to the movie revealed, "Vijay plays the role of a gangster in his 40s. While the film narrative has some flashback sequences featuring the younger version of self, a major chunk of the narration will see him in the 40s. He will be sporting a salt and pepper look, and the character presentation will be on the lines of Rajinikath's Baasha."

"Lokesh definitely wants to bring Vijay also into the universe since he is playing a gangster. There is a version of Thalapathy 67 that has the presence of some characters from Kaithi and Vikram in it, but there are ample formalities and Lokesh is waiting to get approval from all the stakeholders before locking the final draft. While Kaithi is produced by Dream Warrior Pictures and Vikram by Raaj Kamal Productions, Thalapathy 67 is bankrolled by Seven Screen Studio," the source added.
