Will Arjun Das be reprising his character in Kaithi 2?

Earlier in an interview, Arjun expressed eagerness about the possibility of reprising his role in Kaithi 2. He said in his native language which we loosely translated to “Only Lokesh sir can confirm if I'll be in Kaithi 2. It would be great if he could call me. Fortunately, I didn't die in the last film, so I'm hopeful to be part of this one.”

What do we know about Kaithi?

In the film, a recently released prisoner races against time to drive poisoned cops to a hospital in exchange for meeting his daughter while evading criminals chasing him. Released in 2019, the movie opened to positive reviews from critics. Following the positive reception, the film became a box-office success, grossing ₹105 crore. Kaithi is followed up in Vikram (2022) with Narain reprising his role as Bejoy, while George Maryan reprises his role as Napoleon in Leo (2023).
