Lokesh Kanagaraj Confirms ‘Leo’ Sequel, Igniting Celebrations Among Fans
‘Leo,’ the directorial marvel by Lokesh Kanagaraj featuring the iconic Thalapathy Vijay, continues to set new benchmarks in the box office, surpassing a staggering 500 crores in its global run. Poised to become one of the foremost hits in Kollywood, ‘Leo’ seems destined to etch its name in Tamil Cinema history.
The latest industry buzz indicates ‘Leo’ is on its trajectory to rewrite Tamil Cinema’s history books, aiming to outshine the monumental success of PS1 by Mani Ratnam, which grossed over 220 crores in Tamilnadu. ‘Leo’ is set to swiftly surpass the 200 crore mark and ultimately target PS1’s final Tamilnadu gross.
Beyond the remarkable box office strides, what elates both Vijay’s ardent fans and cinephiles alike is Lokesh Kanagaraj’s recent revelation during an interview. The director unveiled plans for a sequel to ‘Leo,’ promising to resolve unanswered queries and unveil a deeper narrative layer in ‘Leo 2.’
Kanagaraj teased intriguing connections within ‘Leo’ that tie into his Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU), which notably includes hits like ‘Kaithi’ and ‘Vikram.’ While his upcoming venture stands as a standalone film with Rajinikanth titled ‘Thalaivar 171,’ the director plans to expand the LCU further with films like ‘Kaithi 2,’ ‘Rolex,’ and ‘Vikram 2.’
The latest revelations hint at the potential addition of ‘Leo 2’ to the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, paving the way for an expansive and impactful journey within Indian Cinema.
As Lokesh Kanagaraj orchestrates this visionary expansion, the ‘Leo’ sequel represents a significant step towards making the Lokesh Cinematic Universe a grand narrative tapestry in the realm of Indian Cinema.
