Producers or actors offering expensive gifts to directors after the success of a film is nothing new to Kollywood. Now, Lokesh Kanagaraj joins the list of lucky filmmakers who received a swanky car from Kamal Haasan, who bankrolled the successful movie Vikram.

A picture of Kamal gifting the car to Lokesh has been doing the rounds on social media. This comes as another sweet surprise to the director, who is already elated to have received a handwritten note from the Ulaganayagan. With the movie achieving breakeven status after just four days of its release, it is expected that the team will come up with more surprises for movie buffs as well.

Kamal's latest video thanking the audience has brought cheers to film lovers as he affirmed Suriya's inclusion in the movie's next instalment. All eyes are now on Lokesh who is getting ready for the pre-production works of Thalapathy 67 (tentative title).

Though it was heard earlier that his next film would be a sequel to Kaithi, he came up with Vikram which has a connection with Kaithi. The big moment will be when Lokesh announces Karthi's inclusion in Vikram's next instalment. Cinephiles have already started making fan posters featuring Kamal Haasan, Suriya and Karthi.

Though it is unlikely that Vijay's character can be included in the "Lokesh Universe", fans of the star hope that the filmmaker will come up with innovative ideas to incorporate the role in the next instalment of Vikram.

Kamal had recently spoken about the need to have more multi-starrers in Tamil. He also said that Vikram will be a trendsetter in this regard. The success of the action thriller has breathed a new life into Kollywood industry which has been struggling with regard to meeting expectations whenever big ticket films release.
