This latest statement from the Leo team has come as a move to show support for Vijay Antony in light of the big tragedy his family is facing and fans too have welcomed the decision by giving their nod on social media. According to reports, Meera, a class 12 student, had her dinner on Monday night and went to bed, but was found dead in her bedroom at around 3 a.m. earlier today. She was then rushed to a nearby private hospital where she was declared dead by the doctors on her arrival. The police have said that it is a case of suicide and an investigation is underway.

Earlier today, Leo director Lokesh Kanagaraj paid his condolences to Vijay Antony for his personal loss. The filmmaker posted on X, "Heartbroken to hear the news about your loss @vijayantony  brother More strength to you and your family to get through this loss🙏🏻" (sic)

Likewise, Leo music director Anirudh Ravichander also expressed his sorrow over the tragedy in Vijay Antony's family. He wrote, "Heart goes out to @vijayantony and family at this tragic and difficult time. More power and strength to you." (sic)

Two more Leo posters are to be released after the Telugu and Kannada versions were unveiled to a rousing response. While the Telugu poster launched on Sunday showcased Vijay amidst a snow-clad backdrop in Kashmir where a part of the film's story is set, the Kannada poster released on Monday gave a glimpse of the actor in an emotional state and in the scene of a tragedy with blood splattered around him. Both the Leo posters have added to the already massive excitement surrounding the Vijay film and we can expect the momentum to go higher up next.
