In a recent interview, director Mysskin has revealed that it will be Lokesh Kanagaraj who will be directing Superstar Rajinikanth next, in his next project after Lal Salaam and Thalaivar170. “Lokesh is definitely amidst the cream of directors in Tamil cinema. He is on another level now. I know that he is going to do Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, some say that it will be his final film too,” he said.
Lokesh is now working on the mega biggie Leo which is slated for a grand release on the 19th of October 2023. The film is said to be a part of the LCU, and is a big action thriller shot on a budget that is much above that of Lokesh’s films so far.
