The makers of Leo, starring Vijay, Trisha and Sanjay Dutt, have announced that the audio launch event of the movie has been cancelled, leaving Thalapathy fans extremely disappointed. The makers have revealed that the event has been called off due to the safety constraints and overflowing passes requests.
Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, Seven Screen Studio shared: “Considering overflowing passes requests & safety constraints, we have decided not to conduct the Leo Audio Launch. In respect of the fans’ wishes, we will keep you engaged with frequent updates. P.S. As many would imagine, this is not due to political pressure or any other reasons.”
This has come a few days after AR Rahman’s Chennai concert was met with severe criticism online after fans complained of overcrowding and a stampede-like situation at the venue in Paniyur.
Vijay’s movie Leo has been creating an immense buzz ever since its announcement. While the film is scheduled to release in theatres in October, a recent report claimed that Vijay has already watched the Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial. Leo is an action thriller which also features Trisha Krishnan and Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt in key roles.
Thalapathy Vijay reportedly watched Leo at a special screening in Chennai recently, according to a Tamil YouTube channel Valai Pechu, quoted by Pinkvilla. Even though the post-production and re-recording works of the movie are yet to be finished, Vijay reportedly expressed his desire to watch the film after finishing dubbing for his portions, as per the report.
The report suggested that Vijay was “super impressed” with how Leo turned out. The actor is likely to watch the film once again with his family, once its final cut is ready. However, the makers of Leo haven’t confirmed the report.
