The hype associated with Thalapathy 67 (tentative title) ever since the project was announced needs no introduction. Lokesh Kanagaraj and Vijay teaming up after Master was more than enough for film lovers to wait for its updates. The director revealed a month ago that he has been waiting for Vijay's Varisu to release and that regular updates will follow soon.
As promised, the team started delivering back-to-back updates on social media for the last few days, leaving Vijay fans excited like never before. Finally, the most awaited update, the movie's title, was revealed yesterday.
Though many names like Kuruthi, Garudan, Eagle and Dragon were predicted by cinephiles, makers surprised them with the title Leo with the tagline 'Bloody Sweet'. Needless to say, fans started coming up with various poster designs of the film with the images of Vijay which were featured in the promo video.
However, fans of the star in Alleppey in Kerala did something unbelievable. It is known that the Varisu actor enjoys a huge following in the state. Though the Vamshi Paidipally directorial and Beast couldn't showcase impressive numbers at the box office, fans are quite kicked about seeing their matinee idol again in a Lokesh's movie again.
They have announced that the gangster flick's FDFS tickets in a popular theatre are sold out soon after the title was revealed. A few excited fans also posted the pics of tickets on social media. Fans of Vijay in Tamil Nadu were stunned seeing the dedication of their counterparts in the neighbouring state.
We have to wait and see if Tamil fans of the star, too, come up with something similar in the coming days. The movie carries gargantuan hype and it is predicted that Leo will shatter many records on opening day and weekend in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
