Tamil Nadu govt grants permission to screen special shows for Leo

It is almost confirmed that the advance ticket booking for Leo will begin in Tamil Nadu on October 14.

An announcement is awaited though. The movie is set for a huge release across the world on October 19. Lokesh Kanagaraj has begun interactions with the media, leaving fans excited.

The action drama, starring Vijay, is expected to be released on almost 1,000 screens in Tamil Nadu.

The makers have yet to reveal the total number of screens worldwide. All eyes are now on the day one box office numbers of the film.

Ever since a GO was issued earlier this year following the death of a movie buff, no movies in Tamil enjoyed early morning shows. The likes of Ponniyin Selvan 2 and Jailer began shows only at 9 am.

However, the makers of Leo requested the government to grant permission to screen the movie from 4 am.

A GO has been issued now from the government permitting the makers to screen five shows from October 19 to October 24. The team requested for a 4 am and 7 am show on October 19 and 7 am show from October 20 to 24.

There have been reports doing the rounds about two special shows happening on October 18, but no confirmation has been given so far.
