Leo, the latest action thriller featuring Thalapathy Vijay and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has been making headlines in the Kollywood film industry. Despite opening to a mixed response, it has managed to shatter box office records, recently crossing the impressive milestone of 500 crore rupees in worldwide collections.
This achievement places Leo among the elite ranks of only four Kollywood films to reach this remarkable feat, joining the likes of 2 Point 0, Ponniyin Selvan Part 1, and Jailer. The film’s journey to this financial pinnacle has been notable. After a strong performance on its opening weekend and during the Dasara festival, it did experience a drop in collections.
However, the film has successfully reached the breakeven point in most areas, reassuring its financial stability. As it continues its theatrical run, Leo is poised to add significantly to its already impressive earnings this weekend. In its first week, the movie amassed a staggering 460+ crore rupees in gross collections.
With today’s performance, it is on the brink of entering the exclusive 500 crore club, marking a substantial achievement in the Kollywood industry. Although its next target of 600 crore rupees might appear challenging, Leo is not one to be underestimated. To reach or surpass Jailer’s worldwide gross, the film needs to maintain its momentum for the next ten days.
