Kollywood director Lokesh Kanagaraj has created his own cinematic universe (LCU) with his films Kaithi (2019) and Vikram (2022), and as a result we got to see a handful of Kaithi actors in cameo roles in the Kamal Haasan starrer Vikram. So far lead actors of these LCU films have not appeared in other films, but this might seemingly change in the third film of this franchise i.e. Thalapathy 67.
Kamal Haasan plays Karnan aka commander Arun Kumar Vikram, the older version of the character he played in the 1986 movie Vikram; 2022 Vikram is a spirtiual sequel to this film. Latest we hear Kamal Haasan in this character will make a cameo appearance in Thalapathy 67 starring actor Vijay in the lead.

Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil, who played a pivotal role in 2022 Vikram has also confirmed that there is a chance of him making a cameo in Thalapathy 67, since the films come under the same cinematic universe. The 2022 Vikram had Suriya make a powerful cameo as 'villain' Rolex, hinting a new film in the LCU franchise.
