Anirudh Ravichander has given music for the film.
Sanjay Dutt’s role in Leo
Sanjay Dutt’s look from Leo was unveiled on his birthday in July. Lokesh shared the first look video on X and wrote, “Meet #AntonyDas A small gift from all of us to you @duttsanjay sir! It was indeed a pleasure to work with you! #HappyBirthdaySanjayDutt #Leo.” The clip showcases Sanjay as Antony Das, making his way through a huge gathering. He is seen in a rugged look with a salt and pepper look.
Earlier, the Leo audio event scheduled for September 30 in Chennai was cancelled due to “overflowing passes requests and safety constraints”.
