The film has witnessed a significant decline in its collection over the past couple of days, raising concerns among both the audience and the industry.
According to the well-known industry tracker Sacnilk, ‘Leo’ managed to accumulate a net collection of ₹265.83 crore in India within the first eight days of its release. However, on its eighth day in theaters, the movie saw a collection of ₹10.25 crore from all languages, indicating a noticeable drop in its box office numbers.
Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film maintained an overall Tamil occupancy rate of 25.92% in theaters on October 26, reflecting the impact of the controversy on its viewership.
Despite the challenges it faces domestically, ‘Leo’ has managed to achieve a commendable global collection of ₹464.3 crore. This international success showcases the global appeal of Thalapathy Vijay and the film’s cinematic excellence.
As the scandal surrounding ‘Leo’ unfolds, it remains to be seen how the film’s box office journey will evolve and whether it can overcome the hurdles created by the controversy to continue its impressive run in the coming days.
