Lokesh Kanagaraj is undeniably one of the most prominent filmmakers in the country at present. Quite recently, the filmmaker made his maiden venture as a producer with Vijay Kumar’s latest film Fight Club, which hit the theaters in December last year.

Now, the Leo helmer has announced his second production venture, titled Benz, via social media. The film is helmed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan, known for films like Remo and Sulthan, and is set to feature Raghava Lawrence as the lead. Apart from making the announcement, Lokesh Kanagaraj also shared the film’s first look poster. He also thanked the film’s cast and crew in the captions, where he wrote:

“It is my wish to bring #Benz to the screen and this is catching its own wish at 11:11; I am very happy to be associating with our beloved @offl_Lawrence sir, thank you so much for trusting our team. And Director @bakkiyaraj_k, I am so excited for you. Thank you everyone for making this happen; Need all your wishes and support; With love, Lokesh Kanagaraj”

From the poster, it seems that the film will be an action entertainer and a gritty one for that matter. The poster also carries the quote which reads: “A warrior with a cause is the most dangerous soldier”. Furthermore, it is understood that apart from producing the film, Lokesh Kanagaraj has also written its story, while the director, Bakkiyaraj Kannan, has written the film’s screenplay. Needless to say, the poster has evoked interest in the audience, who are eagerly waiting for further updates regarding the film.
