Thalapathy Vijay, undoubtedly one of India’s biggest stars, has consistently delivered box office blockbusters with his recent films, each grossing over a staggering Rs 300 crore worldwide. Now, with his upcoming pan-India gangster drama, ‘Leo,’ set to hit theaters on October 19, Vijay’s star power is set to reach new heights.
Even before its release, ‘Leo’ has been making waves, breaking records left and right, thanks to its colossal pre-sales in key global markets. Notably, ‘Leo’ has its sights set on surpassing the records of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s last two industry hits, ‘Jawan’ and ‘Pathaan,’ in the United Kingdom.
In an impressive feat, ‘Leo’ has already achieved pre-sales figures exceeding £302K in the UK. With 15 more days to go before its grand release, ‘Leo’ is not only expected to comfortably surpass the pre-sales figures of SRK’s ‘Jawan’ (£307K) and ‘Pathaan’ (£307K) but also set a monumental pre-sales record for any Indian film in the UK market.
Among the top 5 Indian movies with the highest pre-sale gross in the UK, ‘Leo’ is all set to join the ranks, surpassing the likes of Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ (£271K) and SRK’s ‘Chennai Express’ (£258K).
As anticipation continues to build, ‘Leo’ is poised to showcase Thalapathy Vijay’s immense star power and captivate audiences worldwide, making it a film to watch out for.
