Lokesh Kanagaraj is a young and talented filmmaker who has made a name for himself in the Indian film industry with his exceptional directorial skills. Born and brought up in Chennai, Lokesh always had a passion for filmmaking and started making short films while he was still in college. His talent was soon noticed by industry veterans, and he was offered the opportunity to direct his first feature film.
In 2017, Lokesh made his directorial debut with the Tamil film “Managaram,” which received critical acclaim and went on to become a commercial success.
