New Delhi: Early indications suggest that Vijay-starrer Leo, which has been plagued by controversy, had a successful opening day at the box office on October 19.

Among the many upcoming 2023 movies, Leo has the most buzz. Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi were only a few of the languages where the film was made available to the public. The film has mostly gotten excellent reviews, while some viewers were not happy with 2nd half. The film’s first day of release, however, was met with a massive success at the box office.

Apparently, Leo had the “biggest worldwide opening” of any Kollywood film, according to Sacnilk. After their success with Master in 2021, Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj are reuniting for this flick.

First-day estimates in India put the film’s total earnings at more than Rs. 74 crores. Leo is expected to make roughly Rs. 140 crores on its opening day globally, which includes an estimated Rs. 66 crores from previews in the international market.

Leo has broken opening day records in South India’s Kerala and Karnataka states, with the former seeing its first-ever single-day profits of over Rs. 11 crores and the latter reaching over Rs. 14 crores.

Sacnilk predicts that the film will earn Rs. 30.00 crore in Tamil Nadu, Rs. 15 crore in AP-TG, and Rs. 4 crore in ROI. This anticipation points to a total gross of Rs. 74 crores from India. The expected global revenue is Rs. 140 crores, while the foreign amount is expected to be Rs. 66 crores.

Early reports from Sacnilk indicated that on October 19, the actioner was 86.92% full.

Leo has done better in regular performances than Beast, the current record holder, but Beast has the benefit of concerts beginning at 4 AM, with many centres presenting six shows a day. Leo’s first concert was at 9 a.m., and there were only five scheduled for the whole day.

Ramesh Bala, a trade expert, said in his X post that Leo has earned over Rs 100 crore at the box office. He said that the picture had a great opening weekend showing the worldwide box office collection.

On October 19, Leo premiered in theatres all around the world. Fans of Vijay who wanted to see the movie on a large screen setting did so in droves.

While watching Leo, a couple who were Vijay fans exchanged garlands and rings. Several videos and photos of Vijay’s cheering followers have been doing the rounds on the internet. A sea of fans performing complete “band baaja” was seen at several theatres.
