Sanjay Dutt is celebrating his 64th birthday today, and his upcoming film Leo’s director, Lokesh Kanagaraj, celebrated by sharing a montage clip from the film. The clip features Dutt as a menacing-looking gangster named Antony Das. The clip opens with a sculpture of an eagle, which has led fans to speculate that the film may be connected to Lokesh’s previous blockbuster, Vikram. The color palette and tone of the promo are also similar to Vikram and Kaithi, which are part of what is being called Lokesh’s Cinematic Universe.
There are also speculations that the film is inspired by David Cronenberg’s A History of Violence, which is about a former gangster living under a new identity. When a violent incident puts him on national TV, his elder brother comes back looking for him to settle the score. Sanjay Dutt is rumored to be playing the elder brother in Leo. However, no official statements have been made about such speculations. Sharing the promo, Lokesh Kanagaraj wrote, “Meet #AntonyDas. A small gift from all of us to you @duttsanjay sir! It was indeed a pleasure to work with you!”
The promo has been met with positive reactions from fans, who are excited to see Dutt and Vijay together on screen.
