Leo fresh controversy
According to reports, the producers recruited as many as 1,500 extra dancers for the song titled Naa Ready, which was also the first single released from the music album. Producer Lalit Kumar earlier revealed that the song was shot on a massive scale spending a fortune. He revealed that the shooting of the shoot spanned seven days.
Even as the release date of Leo draws closer, many dancers who worked on that song have allegedly waiting for their payments. Earlier, one Riyaz Ahamed released a video making similar allegations. In the video, he claimed that he was one of the freelance dancers hired for the Naa Read song shoot . He also showed the identity card that was distributed among the dancers. "I was one among the 13,00 people. Even after four months, I have not yet received the payment. We are not getting any proper response to the concerns that we have raised. I request the Leo team clear our payments soon," he said.
Leo is one of the most-awaited movies across the world. Written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the movie is due in cinemas on October 19.
