The team held a success press meet today where Karthi thanked the press for the appreciation pouring in. He told the gathering that director Lokesh Kanagaraj had asked him for a period of thirty days to complete the second part.
A source privy to the developments told Silverscreen that the sequel will revolve around the flashback that Karthi narrates in the film, the script book of which was completed once Kaithi was wrapped up. The director will reportedly work on it after he completes ‘Thalapathy 64’, according to the source.
