Lokesh Kanagaraj who rose to fame with Karthi’s Khaidi may be making his Telugu debut very soon. Leading production house Mythri Movie Makers reportedly paid him a whopping 6 Crore advance to the young director for his maiden Telugu Project.
This is the highest ever advance paid to a budding Tamil Director ever by a Telugu Production house. It is already known to our readers that the production house also recently signed Kannada director Prashanth Neel for NTR’s new movie.
Lokesh is known for gripping thrillers and is currently directing Master with Tamil superstar Vijay. The movie was supposed to release in April but it got postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. If the movie becomes a blockbuster, Mythri may have got a great deal.
