'Thalapathy' Vijay's Leo released in theatres worldwide on October 19 has turned out to be a phenomenal box office success and is continuing to witness a strong run in theatres everywhere. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj with music by Anirudh Ravichander, the mass-action drama film featured an ensemble star cast that included some of the biggest names in Tamil and Indian cinema starting with Trisha, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun, Mysskin, Gautham Menon, Mansoor Ali Khan, Sandy master, with popular Sri Lankan YouTuber and artiste Janany Kunaseelan also appearing in a key role in her acting debut in Tamil cinema. 

Janany Kunaseelan, who is already a youth sensation after her stint on Bigg Boss Tamil season 6, appeared as a barista in Vijay's coffee shop in Leo and featured in an action sequence that has the Tamil superstar taking on Mysskin and Sandy master. Explaining her experience shooting the intense fight scene, she said, "In the sequence, Sandy master would pull my arm. My hand is quite sensitive and I even sustained small bruises. I didn't inform anybody about the injury and was quiet during the shooting. I think even Sandy master prodded me to share it [with the film's unit], but I told him that it was okay as I didn't want anybody to go through any difficulties because of me. Prior to filming the scene, Loki anna (director Lokesh Kanagaraj) called me and narrated the scene in the coffee shop. He explained that the scene is set at night after my marriage takes place in the morning and told me to imagine how it would be if it happened for real." 

Speaking about the reaction of the cast and crew of Leo after shooting the fight scene, Janany said, "Everyone clapped. In fact, I had to pull Mysskin sir in the scene and I did that in one take. My mindset was that no artiste should feel that we're going for multiple takes because of me. Mysskin sir immediately clapped and urged everyone to do the same, and told me that he wanted me to act in his next film. Everyone told me that I acted well. I asked Loki anna whether the scene came out okay since he usually doesn't say anything. He said that he wouldn't have given it his nod if the shot wasn't okay."
