About Leo Movie

    • In March 2022, director Lokesh Kanagaraj confirmed reports that there were discussions for him to direct Vijay’s 67th film. That May, he confirmed the project, tentatively titled Thalapathy 67.

    • The film’s official title was revealed as Leo on 3 February 2023. Principal photography began on 2 January 2023 at EVP Film City in Chennai and wrapped on 14 July 2023.

    • Vijay was reported to receive ₹120 crore (US$15 million) as remuneration. However, he reportedly decided to take the revenue-sharing model, to benefit the film’s production; as per the basis, he would receive ₹50 crore (US$6.3 million) as an advance, and a chunk of the profits would be received as the actor’s remuneration.

    • Vijay was not in favour of making Leo a pan-Indian film as he wanted to focus on satisfying the Tamil audience. The actor, however, changed his mind after Lalit and Jagadish convinced him. Some changes were also made to the original story to help the film cater to a wider audience.

    • Leo is Sanjay Dutt’s Tamil film debut as well as his second South Indian film after KGF: Chapter 2 (2022).

    • Mathew Thomas making his Tamil debut with the film.

    • Vijay would sport a grey-shaded hairstyle for his character, which was finalised after 30 different looks.

    • Cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa brought an IMAX-certified RED V-Raptor 8K camera to shoot significant portions, a first for a Tamil film.

    • The film’s soundtrack is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, in his fourth collaboration with Vijay, after Kaththi (2014), Master and Beast; third collaboration with Lokesh after Master and Vikram (2022).

    • Vijay shot a fight scene with only a simple, thin shirt and had to roll on ice, despite the temperature being -20 °C. A sequence involving him shirtless was also filmed.

    • The track “Bloody Sweet” that was featured in the two-minute promo video was released on 3 February 2023, the same date as the promo.

    • The music rights were purchased by Sony Music India for ₹16 crore (US$2.0 million).

    • The first look poster was released on 22 June 2023 and became the most liked first look in 24 hours on Twitter. The Telugu poster which was released on 17 September 2023, became the fastest poster of an Indian film to reach 1 million likes on Instagram in 32 minutes.

    • The film’s trailer, released on 5 October 2023, became the most-watched Tamil trailer in 24 hours with 47 million views across four languages. It gained 1 million likes in 21 minutes, 2 million likes in 7 hours, and over 3.7 million likes in 24 hours, becoming the fastest film trailer to achieve the feat.

    • Leo was released worldwide on 19 October 2023 in standard, IMAX, and other premium formats. Apart from Tamil, the film was released in dubbed versions including the Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam languages. An uncut version of the film will be theatrically released in the UK.

    • Leo was the first film of Vijay to be released in the IMAX format in the UK.

    • According to Indian trade sources, Leo is set to become the first Tamil film to achieve a pre-release recovery of ₹422 crore (US$53 million) with the sale of satellite, digital, music, and theatrical rights, out of which, ₹246 crore (US$31 million) has been earned from the film’s non-theatrical rights. The overseas theatrical rights were sold to Phars Films for ₹60 crore (US$7.5 million).

    • The streaming rights of the film were bought by Netflix. The satellite rights were bought by Sun TV.

    • After the song “Naa Ready” was released, Pattali Makkal Katchi president and MP Anbumani Ramadoss asked Vijay to stop promoting smoking scenes in the film. Chennai-based RTI Selvam filed an online complaint against the film with the Chennai Police Commissioner asking for action against Vijay under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. The complaint stated that through the song, Vijay was glorifying the consumption of drugs. On 26 June 2023, Selvam submitted his complaint in person as well. A ban on the film was also demanded. As a result, the song was censored with fewer smoking scenes, and some lyrics were modified under the suggestion of the CBFC.
