Lokesh Kanagaraj

Director Lokesh Kanagaraj is set to unveil his sixth feature film, tentatively titled Thalaivar 171, starring the iconic ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth. The much-anticipated title reveal is scheduled for April 22, 2024.

The initial glimpse of Rajinikanth in the movie hints at a significant role for ‘gold’ and speculations suggest “Eagle/Kazhugu” might be the chosen title.

Lokesh Kanagaraj is currently one of the most sought-after directors in the country. Biggest stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Prabhas, NTR, Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, and Salman Khan are eager to collaborate with him.

However, he chooses to focus on directing senior heroes from the Tamil industry, demonstrating his loyalty to the Tamil cinema landscape.

Despite the potential to move to a different league by working with pan-India superstars, Kanagaraj remains dedicated to Tamil cinema exclusively, investing the prime years of his career in its growth.

Thalaivar 171 promises a unique narrative, unfolding over a single day, reminiscent of Kanagaraj’s previous work in “Kaithi”.

The promo shoot for Thalaivar 171 is set to commence next week. Fans eagerly anticipate a signature Lokesh Kanagaraj style teaser, featuring Rajinikanth, slated for release on April 22nd.
