As the tremor was felt in Kashmir, the team of Leo took to their Twitter page to confirm that everyone is safe. Seven Screen Studios, makers of Leo, took to Twitter to inform that they were safe by sharing a Vadivelu GIF from the Tamil film Chandramukhi. They wrote, "We are safe nanba! - Team #LEO (sic)." Going by the GIF, it is evident that the team felt the impact of the tremor.
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 Sanjay Dutt, Mysskin, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Arjun, and Priya Anand among others.
A couple of weeks ago, actor Sanjay Dutt joined the sets of the film. He plays the prime antagonist. The project marks his Tamil debut and will be his next major south release after last year’s KGF: Chapter 2. The team is expected to complete the Kashmir schedule by April and return to Chennai for a short break. A massive airport set is being erected in Hyderabad for the next schedule.
Recently, Leo director Lokesh Kanagaraj 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’s 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.
