Sanjay Dutt is celebrating his 64th birthday and filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj celebrated by sharing a montage clip from his upcoming film Leo. Sanjay looks menacing in the video and comes across as a gangster. His name is revealed as Antony Das.
As the antagonist, Antony Das, Sanjay exudes a stylish and suave persona, making him a formidable opponent to Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo. Kanagaraj expressed his pleasure in working with Dutt and presented the video as a small gift to the veteran actor.
The montage clip opens with a sculpture of an eagle. The colour palette and tone of the promo are also like what was seen in Vikram and Kaith, which are also a part of what is being called Lokesh’s Cinematic Universe. Sharing the post, Lokesh wrote in the caption, “Meet Antony Das A small gift from all of us to you @duttsanjay sir! It was indeed a pleasure to work with you! #HappyBirthdaySanjayDutt #Leo”.
