The latest hot buzz in Kollywood is that director Lokesh Kanagaraj's next after Thalapathy Vijay's Master is likely to be with Karthi.
Earlier, the director was in talks with Kamal Haasan's Raj Kamal Films International, and Superstar Rajinikanth was supposed to play the lead role. But as Rajinikanth is yet to complete the shoot of Annaatthe, his film with Lokesh Kanagaraj is likely to begin only in May 2021.
As Rajinikanth's film is getting delayed, sources say that Lokesh's next is likely to be with Karthi and Dream Warrior Pictures will be bankrolling the film.
Lokesh had earlier teamed up with Karthi and Dream Warrior Pictures for the blockbuster film Kaithi. After Master hit the screens, Lokesh will announce his new film, says a source close to the director.
