Hyderabad, October 18, 2023 – Good news for Thalapathy Vijay’s fans in Telugu states as the highly anticipated film ‘Leo’ is all set for its scheduled release on October 19, 2023. The film’s producer, S Naga Vamsi, confirmed that there would be no delay, despite a recent court order temporarily stalling its release in the region.
The situation unfolded when a petitioner approached the city civil court in Hyderabad, seeking a stay on the screening of ‘Leo’ until October 20. The petitioner claimed that the title ‘Leo’ was already registered in Vijayawada. However, it appears the issue has been swiftly resolved in an amicable manner, according to Naga Vamsi.
Vamsi stated, “Today at noon, there was a slight miscommunication that took place when a person approached the court instead of approaching us. He claimed that the title Leo was already registered somewhere in Vijayawada. We’ve identified the problem and it is being sorted in an amicable manner.”
The producer further assured fans of a smooth release, saying, “The title has been registered, and the film has been censored too. We’ve mutually agreed to sort out the issue because the person who registered it shouldn’t be at a loss, and the film should arrive in theaters as per the schedule. So, there will be no further impediment to the release of the Telugu version of ‘Leo’.”
‘Leo’ is poised to take the theaters by storm on October 19, setting the stage for an intense box office clash with other prominent Telugu releases, including Nandamuri Balakrishna’s ‘Bhagvanth Kesari’ and Ravi Teja’s ‘Tiger Nageswara Rao,’ both of which are also scheduled for a theatrical release on the same day.
Commenting on the simultaneous release of these major Telugu films, Naga Vamsi expressed his confidence in the capacity of theaters to accommodate all three, saying, “I have no issues with the theaters in the Telugu states. Theaters have been sorted for Nandamuri Balakrishna’s film ‘Bhagavanth Kesari,’ there are plenty for Ravi Teja Garu’s film ‘Tiger Nageswara Rao.’ And ‘Leo’ too has considerable theaters. I hope Telugu films will become a massive hit.”
‘Leo,’ directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, is a star-studded film that features Thalapathy Vijay alongside Trisha Krishnan. The cast also includes Arjun, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Mysskin, Priya Anand, Babu Antony, and George Maryan. Notably, Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt plays a pivotal role in the film, adding to the excitement surrounding its release. With the controversies now resolved, fans are eagerly awaiting ‘Leo’s’ arrival in theaters, ready to experience a cinematic extravaganza on October 19.
