It looks like the buzz around Thalapathy Vijay's Leo is only getting stronger by the day. During a recent press meet in Kerala, Mathew Thomas was asked about his experience working in the Lokesh Kanagaraj film. The actor stated that at first he was a tad nervous as he didn't speak the language.

"I was apprehensive at first. I kept on citing my challenges to Lokesh Kanagaraj sir and he understood my concerns. I had expressed from day one that I didn't know Tamil. He gave me the time to ease in, so I was quite comfortable on the sets. And hence, it was easy to work in the film."

The actor also stated that he had a clean-shaven look and that he played the elder brother to Eyal (daughter of actor Arjunan of Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Eppadi and Vaaiyai Moodi Pesavum fame). Eyal was seen posing along with Vijay and Trisha in the flight as they headed to their schedule in Kashmir.

Talking about the experience working on the Lokesh Kanagaraj film, Mathew Thomas summed it up in a single word, "Adipoli." The actor revealed that he cannot talk further about the film. Leo marks Mathew Thomas's debut in Tamil and it is speculated that he will play Vijay's son in the film.

The team of Leo had dropped a BTS picture with the evergreen hit pair Thalapathy Vijay and Trisha, on the occasion of the latter's birthday. The picture instantly won the hearts of many.  The Leo team has currently begun the next leg of the Chennai schedule of the film, which is said to span over a month.

The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander, cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa and editing by Philomin Raj. Dialogues for the film are penned by Lokesh Kanagaraj himself, along with Deeraj Vaidy and Rathnakumar. Leo is bankrolled by Seven Screen Studios and Jagadish Palaniswamy.
