There were reports in various media houses that Maanagaram director Lokesh Kanagaraj is in talks with actor Karthi for a film. However, in an earlier Twitter interaction, the film's producer SR Prabhu had promised that he will not force Lokesh to work with big heroes.
Sources close to Lokesh Kanagaraj also say that the director is yet to complete the script work and he hasn't even met Karthi so all the reports which are doing the rounds are baseless. Once Lokesh completes his script, he will narrate it to to SR Prabhu and SR Prakash Babu, who will then decide on how to take the project forward.
Karthi is currently busy with Theeran Adhigaram Ondru and from July, he will begin shooting for Prabhu Deva's Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja with Vishal.
