Kaithi, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, hit the theatres two days ahead of Diwali on October 25. The film is clashing at the box office with big-budget film Bigil which stars powerhouse performers Vijay, Nayanthara and Jackie Shroff.
Of the two films that have released, Kaithi is getting lauded for its interesting premise with positive reviews from all the critics. Now, it looks like there might be a sequel to Kaithi because of the open ending climax that Lokesh had written.
Confirming the same, Lokesh took to Twitter and wrote,” Thanx 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 txts and calls yes“ Dilli will be back (sic)”
The sequel to Kaithi will follow the story of Adaikalam (Harish Uthaman) and Dilli (Karthi). In the film, Dilli had killed all the henchman who was operating under Adaikalam and destroyed the entire business they had spent.
