Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the well-known cricketer is all set to enter into the Tamil film industry, as a producer. His production house Dhoni Entertainments is reportedly producing a couple of projects in Tamil and is also expanding into other South Indian languages including Malayalam and Kannada, with soon-to-be-announced projects. According to the latest reports Mahendra Singh Dhoni may make his acting debut soon, with hitmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj's upcoming project.
According to the reports, director Lokesh Kanagaraj is engaged in casting Mahendra Singh Dhoni in one of his highly anticipated upcoming projects. Yes, you read that correctly. The reports suggest that the much-awaited project will be a part of the highly popular Lokesh Cinematic Universe aka LCU, the Tamil cinema franchise founded by the supremely talented filmmaker. However, there are also chances that MS Dhoni will make his film debut with Lokesh Kanagaraj's much-anticipated project with Thalapathy Vijay, which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 67. However, none of these reports has been officially confirmed yet.
Upcoming projects of Lokesh Kanagaraj
The hitmaker is currently on a high after the massive success of his recent film Vikram, which starred legendary actor Kamal Haasan in the titular role. In several recent interviews, Lokesh Kanagaraj confirmed that he is planning many more projects in LCU, including the sequels to the blockbusters Kaithi and Vikram. However, Lokesh has not disclosed whether his upcoming project Thalapathy Vijay, which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 67, is a part of the LCU.
Irumbu Kai Mayavi, the superhero project that was originally supposed to mark the first collaboration with Lokesh Kanagaraj and the National award-winning star Suriya, might also get reconstructed soon. If the rumours are to be believed, Hombale Films, the makers of the successful KGF franchise , might come on board as the producers of the project, which is based on a well known DC novel.
