Leo, with the dynamic presence of Thalapathy Vijay and the craftsmanship of Lokesh Kanagaraj, has become the talk of Kerala. The film’s success story isn’t just a tale; it’s a milestone, setting a new bar with its blockbuster opening day. Such a monumental win called for a grand celebration. Lokesh Kanagaraj, with plans of a Kerala Success Meet, set out to meet his fans.
Thank you Kerala for your love.. Overwhelmed, happy and grateful to see you all in Palakkad. ❤️
Due to a small injury in the crowd, I couldn’t make it to the other two venues and the press meeting. I would certainly come back to meet you all in Kerala again soon. Till then… pic.twitter.com/JGrrJ6D1r3

But sometimes, plans face detours. Lokesh’s Kerala journey witnessed an unexpected turn when he suffered an injury. While he had charted out a press meet in Kochi and theatre visits, the universe spun a different narrative. The director’s arrival caused a massive assembly of fans at Palakkad Kavita Theater. Their immense excitement resulted in a rush, leading to Lokesh’s unfortunate mishap. Consequently, the visits to Thrissur Ragam Theater and Kochi Kavita Theater were put on the back burner.
Turning to social media, Lokesh expressed, “Kerala’s warmth and affection have been truly overwhelming. The gathering in Palakkad will always hold a special place in my heart. However, a minor injury has paused my journey, making me miss out on further interactions and the press event. But hold on, Kerala! I vow to return and meet my cherished fans. Until then, let your love for Leo remain undiminished.”
This incident, more than anything, showcases the film’s unmatched success in Kerala and the unbreakable bond between an artist and his supporters.
