"It is a very hard decision and We feel the same level of disappointment as each one of the fan will go through.

Leo audio launch cancelled over security concerns
According to the official statement from Seven Screen Studio, the producers of Leo, the number of fans who expressed interest in being presented at the audio release event exceeded their expectations. "Considering overflowing passes requests & safety constraints, we have decided not to conduct the Leo Audio Launch. In respect of the fans' wishes, we will keep you engaged with frequent updates. P.S. As many would imagine, this is not due to political pressure or any other reasons," producers tweeted.
Just hours before the news of the cancellation came in, the producers were involved full-fledged in the preparations for the event. The grand musical event was supposed to take place at Chennai's Nehru Stadium on September 30. The organisers even started distributing the passes for the event.
Leo is one of the most-awaited movies of 2023. Written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the movie is now in post-production. Besides Vijay and Trisha, the movie also has a star-studded supporting cast, including Sanjay Dutt, Arjun, Priya Anand, Mysskin, and Gautham Menon.
Leo is due to arrive in cinemas on October 19.
