At first, #LokeshKanagaraj had only written the story idea of #Kaithi and he had approached several other directors across Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam to direct the movie for him. Below were their responses !

#Atlee-"This hero who is coming out of prison, his dad, his brother, his son-all would be played by Vijay. When Vijay faces one set of villains, he can bet with them over a 1x11 football match. We will discuss the rest tomorrow. I am actually renting and watching few CDs tonight"
Shankar - "We have to plan 2 years on the 4 songs to be made - the locations, sets etc . For the screenplay, this hero will have a flashback where 4 villains are behind the reason he is in jail. He will return from jail and kill these 4 guys in sequence like my other movies"
Sathyan Anthikad - " I want a change in this story. This hero who gets out from jail will meet a girl who reforms his life. For a fresh perspective, we can make one of them an orphan too"
Amal Neerad - " Did you say the hero and gang have to cover 80 km to reach the police station? Sorry I don't think I can make this movie, because the lorry would be moving in slow motion for the entire part".
Prithviraj - " I can make this movie in big scale in 3 months. Let us then concentrate on lot of promotional interviews where I can say how small and simple this movie is "
Srikumar Menon - " This hero already sounds an amalgamation of Pulimurugan and Bahubali. I am already a specialist in making stories that happen in night. I would put in a lot more smoke and darkness so that no one can see anything. This would be India's first 2000 crore movie "
Myskin - " I like this idea. There is a lot of scope for blood and violence. Let the hero have some eccentricity and the villain have the habit of keeping body parts in a fridge. "
Sanjay Leela Bhansali - " We have to shift this entire story back to 100 years. The hero would be a king who lost his daughter and got imprisoned. We can then throw in a lot of costumes, jewelry, grand sets etc"
Rohit Shetty - " I like the concept of a road movie. We can have a lot of cars, jeeps and lorries flying in air and crashing with each other. To help the main character, one of my police characters from my Singham or Simmba movie can be part of the movie as well"
Gautam Menon - " I have few ideas..." Producers - "Sorry, please stop there. We want to get this movie released at least in next 10 years"
Karan Johar - " Love the idea. Let me take a list of star sons and daughters who are past the age of 18 and now ready to be launched"
(Added -Got this LJP idea from another friend now)

Lijo Jose Pellissery -" Girish , let us run behind the lorry for 80km while it goes to the police station"
Girish Gangadharan - " I quit this job"
