Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is basking in the phenomenal response for his latest release Kaithi, has confirmed that a sequel is in the offing. Kaithi is the story of a prisoner, Dilli, on parole to see his daughter for the first time and how he gets embroiled in a face-off between cops and drug lords.

Following the tremendous response for Kaithi, Lokesh took to Twitter to thank audience for the response and hint about the sequel. “Thanks for the overwhelming response guys. Loved every minute in sets and the entire process of making Kaithi. Will cherish this forever! Thank you once again Prabhu sir and Karthi sir for the opportunity! To answer all your texts and calls, yes, Dilli will be back,” Lokesh tweeted.

In a media interaction a day after the release of Kaithi, Karthi also confirmed that the sequel plan is very much on. “Lokesh has asked for just 30 days of my call sheet to finish Kaithi 2. So, you can expect a sequel from us,” Karthi said.

Despite releasing alongside Vijay’s Bigil, Kaithi managed to do well at the box-office, grossing around Rs 11 crores from its opening weekend in cinemas in Tamil Nadu. The entire story unfolds within a span of a single night. The film was highly praised for not having a heroine or any songs. Kaithi also featured Narain and Harish Uthaman in key roles. Narain played an injured cop who seeks Karthi’s help to save his colleagues from being killed by drug lords.

Meanwhile, Lokesh will soon join back on the sets of Thalapathy 64, which marks his first-time collaboration with Vijay. The film, which had its official launch earlier this month, features Malavika Mohanan as the leading lady. The yet-untitled project stars Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist while Anirudh Ravichander has been roped in to compose music.
