Lokesh Kanagaraj Despite the terrific success of the film, Lokesh doesn't carry the aura of a 'director'. Just like his film, he's practical and realistic. Every five minutes, he takes a glimpse at his mobile as the notifications pop up quite often. Even on his birthday, Lokesh runs from pillar to post! I guess that's what happens when you direct a solid thriller. A week after the film's release, Lokesh talks to India Today about his journey and Maanagaram.To be honest, I don't have an identity because my career graph is mixed up. After graduating in fashion technology, I did an MBA. I was a bank employee for four-and-a-half years until I got an opportunity to direct short films. I don't have a cinematic journey as such. But I was into short films for four years, thanks to Karthik Subbaraj, who took the initiate to release my short film Kaalam, which was part of the film Aviyal.Latest NewsSee All News No items found.Latest ImagesSee All Images No items found.Latest VideosSee All Videos No items found.
