After almost two months, team Leo has completed the crucial schedule in Kashmir and has returned to Chennai. The movie was in the news the other day as there were reports of some of the crew members experiencing an earthquake during their stay in the northern Indian state.

As a tribute to the team who went through several hurdles during the schedule, makers have unveiled a seven-minute BTS video which feature some of them narrating their harrowing experiences that include scouting locations in adverse climate, setting up shots amid possibility of short circuit, cleaning vessels and stitching clothes during chilling climate.


Some of them confess that there were times when they felt like going back to Chennai as the freezing temperature was beyond tolerance level. According to them, one major factor which inspired them was the enthusiasm of director Lokesh. It was his limitless energy and motivation which made them put their best foot forward.

The video also has a couple of local residents in Kashmir going gaga over the dedication of crew members. A soldier hailing from Tamil Nadu opening up about providing protection to the team along with others is another highlight of the BTS video.

As expected, Vijay makes an entry towards its end. He is seen running and punching an unknown guy as part of one of the sequences in the movie. The actor is also spotted interacting with a few soldiers. The video ends with the caption 'A tribute to the crew behind Leo'.

Lokesh took to his Twitter page to write, "Massive respect to the cast and crew of #LEO who worked really hard no matter what, in the process of entertaining people (sic)." Movie buffs are showering praise on the team on social media and are curious to know about the next surprise makers have in store for them.
