'Leo' has been shot over the course of 125 days. The film marks a reunion between Vijay and the filmmaker after the 2021 blockbuster 'Master' and also brings together Vijay and Trisha once again on screen after a gap of 15 years. Kanagaraj and his team had unveiled the poster of 'Leo' last month to celebrate Vijay’s 49th birthday. They also released the first single 'Naa Ready'.
Apart from Vijay and Sanjay Dutt, the film boasts an ensemble star cast and features Trisha Krishnan, Arjun Sarja, Mansoor Ali Khan, Priya Anand, Mysskin, Mathew Thomas, choreographer-actor Sandy, and director-actor Gautham Vasudev Menon.
Anirudh Ravichander, who composed music for Kanagaraj’s earlier movies 'Master' and 'Vikram', is scoring the soundtrack of the film. The film is bankrolled by Seven Screen Studios' Lalit Kumar and Jagadish Palaniswamy and is slated to hit the screens in October, eyeing the pooja holidays.
