With the hype for Leo getting bigger and bigger by the day, more exciting details about the film are tumbling out. The latest we hear is that actor Jawahar (actor Nassar's brother) is making a special appearance in the film.

Jawahar's character in the film's turning point
The actor revealed that he plays a minor role in the film, but his character appears in the story's major turning point. His combination scenes are with Gautham Menon and his portions were shot for 12 days. He added that he was part of some heavy-duty risky scenes, including driving near a deep valley, a slight miss and his car would fall into the valley. Jawahar revealed that he didn't know how to drive a car and he learnt it for the particular scene."

Leo, like a Hollywood film
Jawahar said that he gained a lot of experience working in the film and he thoroughly enjoyed shooting in Kashmir. He said that it was so cold that he couldn't stay back on the set to witness the other scenes. He added Leo was heavy on action and that it was akin to a Hollywood film. Jawahar said he continues to be in touch with Vijay and Mysskin.

Leo has an ensemble cast
It wouldn't be an exaggeration to call the film a star-studded affair. The star cast includes Trisha, Vijay, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Sarja, Mysskin, Gautham Menon, Priya Anand, Sandy Master, Mansoor Ali Khan, Mathew Thomas to name a few. There is also a buzz that Pariyerum Perumal star Kathir is a part of the star cast. Vasanthi, who played Agent Tina, was also part of the team that headed to the Kashmir schedule.

Leo is bankrolled by Lalith Kumar's Seven Screen Studio and Jagdish's The Route, marking the latter's debut in production.
