The film Leo, starring Thalapathy Vijay, is said to have debuted in theatres last weekend. The film grossed a staggering amount of money during its opening weekend at the box office. However, there has recently been a Twitter trend termed “Leo Scam” in which individuals say that Leo is the victim of a complex strategy to make him appear popular when, in fact, it is based solely on fraudulent donations.
Leo’s Fake Box Office Collections Becomes Hot Topic
The first claim is that ComScore, a website that measures income, has drastically overstated Leo’s collection. While many alleged that they had artificially raised Leo’s box office receipts, this tracker was deemed reliable in the Tamil business. Then, some Rajinikanth fans claimed on Book My Show that Jailer had sold more tickets than Leo, but that Leo’s earnings had eclipsed Jailer’s. They allege that Vijay’s gang is expanding the quantity.
Using Proxy Bookings
Following that, a video comes suggesting that, even though the Leo Theatre is empty, there are proxy bookings indicating that it is fully occupied. Proxy booking is allegedly being used to trick moviegoers into thinking theatres are swiftly filling up.
As a result, the hashtag #LeoScam has begun to gather traction on Twitter. This has received a lot of attention on social media. Netizens are increasingly expressing their displeasure with the film, particularly its uninspired second half. The film’s varied reviews have spurred several discussions and controversies.
