    Currently director Lokesh Kanagaraj and the Leo team are prepping for the climax shoot of the movie which will be an all-out fight between Vijay and Arjun Sarja.

    Arjun Sarja recently joined the movie's cast for an undisclosed role and it looks like he will be playing the main villain of the film.

    The climax is scheduled for a 20-day shot in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. Recently Thalapathy Vijay showed off his brand new avatar for the upcoming Leo, this new look confirmed that the actor will be sporting two different looks in the movie.
