Lokesh Kanagaraj Unveils Action-Packed Plans for Rajinikanth Starrer ‘Thalaivar171’

In the realm of Indian cinema, director Lokesh Kanagaraj stands tall, acclaimed for his captivating storytelling prowess in a concise filmography of five celebrated movies. Presently, the maestro filmmaker is on a hiatus from social media, channelling his energy into the highly anticipated ‘Thalaivar171,’ starring none other than Rajinikanth.

During a recent college event, Lokesh Kanagaraj divulged insights into the forthcoming project, expressing his intent to craft an action-packed spectacle befitting a Rajinikanth extravaganza. Contrary to his prior themes addressing drug abuse, he confirmed the absence of such elements in this venture, while hinting at portraying the revered actor in a contrasting negative shade.

Surprising as it may seem, given Kanagaraj’s thematic inclinations, the audience awaits eagerly to witness this novel collaboration between the visionary director and the legendary Rajinikanth. Scheduled to commence production in April 2024, ‘Thalaivar171’ promises an exhilarating cinematic journey.

Further intriguing the audience, the filmmaker entertained inquiries about the possibility of a sequel to ‘Leo.’ Responding candidly, Kanagaraj admitted not having contemplated ‘Leo 2’ yet but expressed openness to the prospect amid his ongoing commitments, including ‘Thalaivar171,’ ‘Kaithi 2,’ and more. Additionally, he expressed admiration for working with Thalapathy Vijay, leaving fans hopeful for potential future collaborations.

‘Thalaivar171,’ Lokesh Kanagaraj’s sixth directorial venture, is backed by Kalanithi Maran’s Sun Pictures, with Anbariv masters handling the music. Speculations abound regarding the involvement of Raghava Lawrence and Sivakarthikeyan in pivotal roles, awaiting official confirmation.

In other cinematic realms, Rajinikanth steers into ‘Vettaiyan,’ helmed by TJ Gnanavel, alongside a stellar ensemble cast. Meanwhile, Thalapathy Vijay gears up for Venkat Prabhu’s ‘Thalapathy68,’ poised to deliver an exhilarating blend of Vijay’s charisma and Venkat Prabhu’s directorial finesse.
