In a surprising turn of events, Seven Screen Studio, the production company backing Vijay’s highly anticipated film Leo, has decided to skip the audio launch event. Citing safety constraints and the excessive number of pass requests, the studio announced that the event will not take place. However, they reassured fans that regular updates about the film will be shared in the coming days.
The announcement came as a huge disappointment for Vijay fans, as the actor’s long and engaging speeches have been a major attraction at his film’s audio launch events in recent years. Many fans looked forward to hearing Vijay speak about Leo and his experiences during the making of the film.
This news follows the recent controversy surrounding Leo, in which popular Tamil political commentator Savukku Shankar accused Udhayanidhi Stalin of using government influence to secure lucrative deals for the movie’s producers. Shankar claimed that the Tamil Nadu government denied permission for the audio release event to be held at the Nehru stadium in exchange for distribution rights in certain regions. However, Seven Screen Studio swiftly denied these allegations and stated that the news was false.
Leo, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and produced by SS Lalit Kumar’s Seven Screen Studio, boasts an impressive cast including Vijay, Trisha, Arjun, Sanjay Dutt, Priya Anand, and Mysskin. The film’s music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, and it is set to release worldwide on October 19, coinciding with the Ayudha Pooja holidays.
