Director Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is awaiting the release of his fifth film Leo with actor Vijay, dropped a surprise update for fans regarding the second single of the film.
Titled Badass, the single is set to be out tomorrow, September 28, announced the director while sharing a new poster from Leo.
It is to be noted that this update comes a day after the makers decided not to conduct the audio launch of the film owing to "safety constraints". The post shared by Seven Screen Studios said, "Considering overflowing passes requests & safety constraints, we have decided not to conduct the Leo Audio Launch. In respect of the fans' wishes, we will keep you engaged with frequent updates. P.S. As many would imagine, this is not due to political pressure or any other reasons."
The first single Naa Ready was released back in June and was a huge hit among fans. Composed by Anirudh Ravichander, the single also has vocals by the music composer along with a rap portion by Asal Kolaar. Naa Ready currently has more than 100 million views on YouTube.
Earlier, as a part of promotions, the makers had shared four posters in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Each of them carried a unique tagline, probably reflecting the core of the film's plot.
Apart from Vijay, Leo stars Vijay, Trisha, Myskiin, Priya Anand, Mansoor Ali Khan, and Sanjay Dutt, among others.
The makers of Leo are yet to announce whether the film is a part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe which already consists of Kaithi (2019) and Vikram (2022). The film has cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa and music by Anirudh Ravichander.
Backed by Lalit Kumar's 7Screen Studio, Leo marks the sophomore collaboration of the actor and filmmaker and will hit the screens on October 19.
