Lokesh Kanagaraj speaks up about his bond with Sanjay Dutt

Director Lokesh Kanagaraj has developed a great rapport with seasoned Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt during the making of Leo.

Dutt, who plays a pivotal role in the movie, has taken a liking to Lokesh’s directorial approach and has affectionately started calling him “son” after just a few days of collaboration.

“After four days of working with me, he started calling me ‘son’. I also told him that I was his big fan since Khal Nayak. He loves my way of working. Because from the beginning, I won’t take too many shots from different angles. I would have discussed the angles with my cameraman, and I won’t trouble the artists with extra shots. Also, I feel when you do multiple takes, at some point, it becomes mechanical. So I don’t do that. I think that’s what he likes about my style of working,” Lokesh revealed.

Leo, featuring an ensemble cast including Vijay, Trisha, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun, Priya Anand, and others, is currently in production.

The film went on the floors earlier this year in the picturesque valley of Kashmir and is progressing smoothly towards its completion. Leo is due in cinemas on October 19.
