Reacting to the post, a fan wrote, “Their bonding looks so real. Best wishes for Leo (sic).” A Twitter user wrote, “Look at the bonding. Like they’ve known each other for far too long (sic).”
In Leo, which stars Vijay as the central character, Sanjay Dutt plays the antagonist. The project marks his Tamil debut and will be his next major south release after last year’s KGF: Chapter 2. Leo marks the reunion of Vijay and director Lokesh Kanagaraj after Master.
Tipped to be another gangster film laced with high action, the film also stars Mysskin, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Arjun, and Priya Anand among others. Anirudh Ravichander has been roped in to compose music. Recently, Lokesh confirmed that Leo will be a gangster film. However, he clarified that it won’t be a part of the film universe he’s building.
Popularly called LCU – Lokesh Cinematic Universe began with Vikram which had a crossover of characters from Lokesh’s Kaithi. It is after completing Leo that Lokesh will begin work on Kaithi 2 with Karthi.
In Kaithi, Karthi played a prisoner on parole to meet his daughter he has never seen. When he crosses paths with a cop, he is forced to join forces with him and fight the drug lords who are after a cocaine consignment in police custody. The entire story unfolds in a single night within a span of four hours. He also has the next part of Vikram with Kamal Haasan in the lead.
