Thalapathy Vijay, the popular Tamil actor, is celebrating his 49th birthday amidst much anticipation for his upcoming film, Leo. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Leo is a gangster drama and serves as the second collaboration between Vijay and Lokesh after their successful film, Master. The first look poster of Leo was unveiled on Vijay’s birthday, showcasing the actor in an intense and action-packed avatar. The poster features Vijay wielding a blood-coated sledgehammer, engaging in a high-voltage fight sequence, with a wolf standing behind him in a jungle.

Leo is set to release in theaters on October 19 and will be a part of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s cinematic universe. Alongside Vijay, the film features a talented ensemble cast, including Sanjay Dutt, who reportedly plays the role of Vijay’s father in the movie. However, the character is more than just a traditional father figure, as both Dutt and Vijay portray gangster roles and share a unique dynamic within the film.
