The film is being produced on a grand scale, and the makers have taken extra measures to safeguard the sanctity of the project. Leo is touted to expand the cinematic universe of drug lords and heroic spies created by Lokesh.
Leo marks the second collaboration between Vijay and Lokesh Kangaraj after the blockbuster hit Master. Lokesh has described Leo as a "100 per cent Lokesh movie," indicating that he has had the freedom to create the film he wants after the success of Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan.

Lokesh has promised that Leo will be an incredible action movie , but he remains tight-lipped about whether it will be part of his cinematic universe.
