At the Zee Cine Awards Tamil 2020, 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan presented the 'Favorite Director' Award to Lokesh Kanagaraj for 'Kaithi'.
We all know that Lokesh is a huge fan of Kamal Haasan so he openly admitted the fact on the stage. "I never worked as an assistant director to anyone. One good thing I have done in my life is watched all the films of Kamal sir. His films are my source of inspiration for Kaithi", said Lokesh.
Talking about Lokesh and Kaithi, Kamal said: "Glad to know that my films inspired Lokesh. In a way, I'm also a director for Kaithi. I would like to say a few more things but on a different occasion".
We at Sify.com had earlier reported that Kamal Haasan's Raj Kamal Films International has signed Lokesh Kanagaraj for a new film. From Kamal's speech, we could guess that the project is happening for real!
