Towards the end of the video, as he draws the sword out, he dips it in the freshly made chocolate ganache. As he wields the sword, the title Leo appears on the screen. Vijay says ‘bloody sweet’ as the video ends.

Leo marks Vijay and Lokesh's reunion after Master. Tipped to be another gangster film laced with high action, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Mysskin, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Arjun, Trisha and Priya Anand among others. Anirudh Ravichander has been roped in to compose music.

Earlier this week, the cast and crew of Leo left for Kashmir to begin filming the first schedule. Fans got to learn about the team’s travel and managed to dig out the entire passenger list to know who will be a part of the film. Some pictures from Chennai airport have also surfaced on social media, confirming that Trisha Krishnan was among them.

Recently, Lokesh clarified whether Leo will be a part of the cinematic universe he’s building. Popularly called LCU – Lokesh Cinematic Universe began with Vikram which had a crossover of characters from Lokesh’s Kaithi. Contrary to recent rumours, his film with Vijay won’t be a part of LCU, the director said at the trailer launch event of the Tamil film, Laththi.

It is after completing Leo that Lokesh will begin work on Kaithi 2 with Karthi. He also has the next part of Vikram with Kamal Haasan in the lead.
