Thalapathy Vijay has been steadily gaining popularity in states beyond Tamil Nadu with his recent film releases. His collaboration with director Lokesh Kanagaraj for the movie ‘Leo’ is seen as a significant step in expanding his fan base further. While his popularity in Tamil Nadu is often compared to that of Rajnikanth, ‘Leo’ is expected to solidify his standing as a dependable hero in other states as well. Despite the initial lukewarm response to the posters, there is immense anticipation surrounding the film, and audiences are eagerly awaiting its release.
The Telugu dubbed version of ‘Leo’ will be distributed by Sitara Entertainments, and they are striving to secure a similar number of theaters as ‘Bhagavanth Kesari’ and ‘Tiger Nageswar Rao,’ emphasizing their commitment to the film’s success.
According to sources in the Kollywood industry, the storyline of ‘Leo’ bears some resemblance to Prabhas’ 2007 film ‘Munna,’ in which Prabhas played the son seeking revenge against his father, portrayed by Prakash Raj. In ‘Leo,’ insiders suggest that Sanjay Dutt will play the role of Antony Das, who is Vijay’s son, while Arjun Sarja will portray Vijay’s brother. The film is expected to strike a balance between action and emotion.
Although there is no concrete evidence to confirm these speculations, they are currently making the rounds. Director Lokesh Kanagaraj, known for his unique storytelling, faces the challenge of catering to a diverse audience to ensure the success of ‘Leo.’ With Anirudh’s musical talents and the presence of Vijay in the lead role, the film is poised to make an impact. Reports also hint at the inclusion of an intense flashback episode, adding to the intrigue surrounding the film. All eyes are now on the release date of October 19th to see how ‘Leo’ performs.
