Thalapathy Vijay's 'Leo' Targets Top UK Opening - Can It Surpass 'Pathaan'?

Thalapathy Vijay's much-anticipated film, 'Leo', is on the verge of creating history at the UK box office. The film's advance bookings have not only set the stage for a spectacular opening but also hold the promise of rewriting records.

The year 2023 has proven to be a pivotal one for Indian cinema. While Hindi blockbusters like 'Pathaan', 'Gadar 2', 'OMG 2', 'Dream Girl 2', and the recent 'Jawan' have reclaimed their dominance at the box office, South Indian films continue to command their own domain. This resurgence evokes memories of monumental successes like 'Baahubali 2', 'Pushpa', 'KGF', 'RRR', 'Kantara', and more. Now, 'Leo' stands poised to etch its name in the annals of cinema.

Thalapathy Vijay's 'Leo' has generated unprecedented buzz overseas, particularly in the UK, where advance bookings have soared, propelling it towards the pinnacle of the highest-rated films. Remarkably, even before its official release, 'Leo' has already earned its place among the top Indian openers in the UK.

According to trade analyst Nishit Shaw, 'Leo' has amassed an impressive £250,520 through pre-sales, catapulting it to the zenith of the industry. With £255K already in its coffers, 'Leo' stands at the fifth position on the list of Top Indian Film Openings in the UK. And with 19 days remaining, the film is poised to challenge 'Pathaan’ for the top spot, a feat that appears increasingly likely.

Here's the list of Top Indian Films [Day 1] in United Kingdom:

  • Pathaan – £319K
