Blockbuster Sensation: ‘Leo’ Roars Past 600-Crore Mark, Set for Digital Release


Helmed by the talented director Lokesh Kanagaraj, ‘Leo,’ featuring the versatile actor Vijay, graced the big screens on October 19, creating quite a buzz among film enthusiasts. The much-anticipated movie garnered a myriad of reactions from the audience, ranging from mixed reviews to sheer adulation. Despite the varying opinions, ‘Leo’ managed to soar to new heights in terms of box office collections, surpassing the performance of Vijay’s previous endeavors. In a relatively short span, it firmly established itself as the highest-grossing film in the actor’s career.

As per the latest updates from the trade circles, ‘Leo’ has accumulated an impressive sum, crossing the remarkable milestone of Rs 592 crore by the end of the 18th day since its release. Now, the film stands on the cusp of a historic achievement, needing only a single-digit addition to reach the coveted 600-crore mark.

After a somewhat lackluster initial week, ‘Leo’ exhibited remarkable resilience, surging to greater heights during the weekends. The box office figures soared, with a particular highlight on Sundays, when the film witnessed a substantial surge in viewership. On November 5, a Sunday to remember, ‘Leo’ managed to rake in an astounding Rs 14 crore globally, pushing the film’s overall collection past the Rs 590 crore threshold. In the state of Tamil Nadu, ‘Leo’ established itself as a formidable force, amassing over Rs 200 crore, while it claimed the title of the highest-grossing Tamil film in the state of Kerala. The resounding success of the film was not limited to a few regions, as it resonated with audiences across the entire Indian subcontinent, propelling its domestic collection to a staggering Rs 340 crore.

What’s even more intriguing is that ‘Leo’ turned out to be a highly profitable venture for its investors, despite the higher initial investment. The filmmakers wasted no time in declaring it a bona fide blockbuster, cementing its status as a mega-success in the industry. As the film inches closer to the 600-crore milestone, eager fans and industry insiders are eagerly awaiting the official box office numbers, which are expected to be unveiled by the production team in the near future.

In addition to its remarkable box office run, ‘Leo’ is also gearing up for an upcoming digital release on an over-the-top (OTT) platform. With the film nearing the end of its theatrical run, fans can look forward to streaming ‘Leo’ on a popular digital platform starting from November 21, expanding its reach to a broader audience and ensuring that its success story continues to grow.
