Vijay's Leo directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj was the biggest Tamil movie ever since it was announced this year. Every update about the project left fans into a tizzy and film buffs were eager to know how the actor-director duo's second collaboration would work at the box office.

The suspense associated with the action drama being a part of LCU or not further elevated the hype keeping everyone on their toes. The makers succeeded in keeping the suspense intact until the film was released today. The movie is said to have shattered several records worldwide.

The distributors of Leo in a few overseas locations opened the advance booking much earlier, which led to the movie registering impressive numbers. It went on to become the biggest ever opener in the UK for an Indian film. Similar records were created in GCC and other countries.

However, it failed to surpass the humongous number that Rajinikanth's Kabali created at the US box office seven years ago. The Superstar's gangster drama helmed by Pa Ranjith registered close to 2M. Leo falls short of the number by a few crores. Cinephiles are now wondering which Tamil movie could break Kabali's massive feat.

Makers to reveal official day one figures?

All eyes are now on Leo's box office numbers. Fans hope that the makers will reveal the worldwide figures by tomorrow. The film is likely to have surpassed the day one number of all Tamil movies.

However, with the mixed response it has been receiving from several quarters, it has to be seen how the Vijay-starrer would perform after the weekend.
