Fans have theorized that Leo could exist within the Lokesh Cinematic Universe (LCU), a shared fictional setting where films like Kaithi and Vikram could share characters and storylines. The earlier reports of Vijay Sethupathi's involvement in Leo appear to be true, as the Makkal Selvan has reportedly set aside three days on his call sheet to act in and do voiceover for the film.

If Kamal Haasan does join Leo, it will be a historic moment for Tamil cinema, as two of the biggest icons of the industry will come together for the first time. Kamal Haasan is currently busy with Shankar’s Indian 2, which is being shot in South Africa. Leo, on the other hand, is expected to wrap up its shooting by May end and release later this year.
