Thalapathy Vijay: The enthusiasm for Leo is translating pretty nicely at the box office. Here’s everything you need to know about the event’s day one advance booking!
The countdown for Leo is nearing its end, as the film will be released in theaters in just two days. The film, which stars Thalapathy Vijay, Sanjay Dutt, and Trisha in major parts, is generating a lot of buzz at the box office in its pre-release phase. This mania is translating quite well in the numbers, and here’s all you need to know about its day 1 advance booking!
The reunion of Thalapathy Vijay and director Lokesh Kanagaraj after the success of Master is one of the movie’s many thrilling aspects. This is the most important movie of Vijay and Lokesh’s careers, and the pre-release buzz is immense. The bookings are open, and we’re observing some ridiculous numbers, especially in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka.
Leo has sold over 13 lakh tickets nationwide through advance purchase for day 1 as of the update at 8:30 a.m. This record-breaking amount of ticket sales—26.30 crores in gross revenue (blockaded seats excluded)—is incredible. In terms of advance ticket sales (for opening day), it has already surpassed Jailer’s 18.50 crores gross to take the top spot in the Tamil film category.
Leo will pass Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, which sold tickets worth 32.43 crores gross on day 1 through pre-booking before the day is done at this rate. After that, it’ll also want to outperform Jawan’s 41 crores in revenue.
Speaking of states, the Thalapathy Vijay starrer is doing the movie Leo very well rush in Tamil Nadu, where it has already grossed 11.50 crores from ticket sales. This is to be expected. Karnataka itself has reached the 9 crore level.
On October 19, Leo will be released.
