With a few hours left for the release of the most-awaited film, Vikram, director Lokesh Kanagaraj has dropped an huge surprise to his followers on Twitter. The filmmaker has asked fans to revisit Kaithi (starring Karthi) before getting into the world of Kamal Haasan's Vikram.

This tweet confirmed that Vikram and Kaithi belong to the same cinematic universe. Even before Lokesh confirmed the same, the theory was discussed by a lot of fans, ever since the trailer was released.

The press release read, “This is the most emotional I have ever felt before the release of my film. As I can remember, ever since I was a kid, I loved Ulaganayagan the most. This is a surreal experience for me, that I am directing a film in his honour.”

He also added, "I thank all the kind souls who made this possible. It has been 18 months since I started working on Vikram. As a team, we have shed blood and sweat (quite literally) for this film, to entertain you; and to celebrate one man, the pride of our nation, Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan.”

Vikram has been certified U/A by the CBFC.

This Kamal Haasan starrer also has Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, and Narain, among others in prominent roles.

With music by Anirudh Ravichander and cinematography by Girish Gangadharan, Vikram is produced by Raaj Kamal Films International and is set to have a grand release on June 3.

Vikram marks the first release of Kamal Haasan, in the past four years. His last release was Vishwaroopam 2 in 2018.

According to sources, Vikram will release around 700 to 800 screens across Tamil Nadu. Also, the film will be released on 400 screens in the two Telugu-speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. This will be the biggest Kamal Haasan movie release ever in the two states.
