Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj has his hands full currently, for he is occupied with filming the much-anticipated Kamal Haasan-Vijay Sethupathi-Fahadh Faasil political action-thriller, Vikram. Meanwhile, he recently also revealed his plans to make a second instalment for the yet-to-be-released movie, for accommodating its wide range of plotlines.

According to an ETimes report, Lokesh believes that the upcoming movie has a storyline that cannot fit in a single two-and-a-half-hour movie and that it needs a sequel to provide its story with a big space. He feels that his vision will get justice if the anticipated project can be made in sequels. Fans have now doubled their expectations, for they are eager to find out what Kamal Haasan’s Vikram has in store for them.

The team of Vikram recently wrapped up their first schedule of shooting, post which they are geared up to film their second schedule in Pondicherry. Bankrolled by the Universal Hero himself under the banner of Raaj Kamal Film International, the political action thriller also brings Anirudh Ravichandar on board for the music department. His music, which featured in the teaser, was enough to pique the excitement of fans.

The lead actor, Kamal Haasan, is simultaneously balancing shooting for the fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil. He also has the upcoming sequel of filmmaker Shankar’s Indian 2 under his belt.

Vijay Sethupathi, on the other hand, is occupied with films like Maamanithan, Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Raj and DK's upcoming web series. He is also awaiting the release of his upcoming one-hour web film Mughizh, starring his daughter Shreeja Vijay Sethupathi and Regina Cassandra.

Fahadh Faasil, on the other hand, will next be seen in the much-anticipated Allu Arjun starring film Pushpa, where he plays the antagonist. He is also occupied with the filming of the upcoming Malayalam thriller, Malayankunju.

Fans are now doubly excited, for they will be receiving a double celebration from the team of Vikram.
