Earlier this year, leading actor-producer Raghava Lawrence opened up on doing a film with Rathna Kumar as the director and Lokesh Kanagaraj serving as the screenwriter. Speaking at the Raghava Lawrence fans festival, the Rudhran actor addressed how he wasn't able to be a part of Vikram (2022) starring Kamal Haasan, and said that he had discussed with Lokesh Kanagaraj about doing another film. Raghava Lawrence said, "He (Lokesh Kanagaraj) is doing the story and screenplay for a project, which will be directed by Rathna Kumar, and we are still in discussion." It can be assumed at this stage that the script and screenwriting work on the duo's project has been completed and the official announcement will also likely carry the cast and crew details.
It is to be noted that Rathna Kumar assisted with the dialogues in 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Master (2021), while also reuniting with Lokesh Kanagaraj once again for the upcoming Leo, which is scheduled to open in cinemas worldwide on October 19. Fans are now waiting for Vijay's Leo to hit screens as all eyes are on Lokesh Kanagaraj and Rathna Kumar to top their game compared to their work in the Tamil superstar's Master.
