Lokesh in talks with SRK, Ranveer?

According to the report, Shah Rukh Khan has declined the role, but Ranveer Singh has expressed a strong interest.

Lokesh Kanagaraj has become a prominent figure not only in Tamil cinema but also nationwide. After the success of his recent film “Leo” starring Thalapathy Vijay, he is now preparing for his next project with Rajinikanth in the lead role. “Thalaivar 171” will be Lokesh Kanagaraj’s sixth film and his first collaboration with Rajinikanth. It is described as a stand-alone project, separate from the Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU). In a recent update, Lokesh has approached Bollywood actors for a role in the film.

According to Pinkvilla, Lokesh was interested in having Shah Rukh Khan make an appearance in the film. Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying, “Lokesh even met Shah Rukh Khan and presented him with an overview of the film’s concept. While SRK loved the subject and has immense respect for Rajinikanth, he politely declined to be part of the film. After making a series of appearances in films like “Brahmastra,” “Rocketry,” and “Tiger 3,” SRK now wants to focus on exclusive standalone feature films.”

The source added that Shah Rukh also informed Lokesh about his extended appearance in Suhana Khan’s theatrical debut, “The King.” “Lokesh understood SRK’s decision and respected it,” the source mentioned, adding that Shah Rukh is open to doing a standalone solo film with Lokesh Kanagaraj.

Meanwhile, Lokesh also discussed the role with Ranveer Singh, who has shown a strong interest. “While Ranveer has heard about the character, he wants to hear the entire script before committing to the film. Lokesh has also explored the possibility of a spin-off for the character if “Thalaivar 171″ is successful,” the source added. Another meeting between Ranveer and Lokesh is scheduled for 2024, according to the report.

“Thalaivar 171” is set to start filming in April next year and is scheduled for release in 2025. The filmmakers are looking to cast around 10 actors from various industries in the ensemble cast, as per the report.
