He said, "I have seen the first half of Leo, and I can assure you that it has come out very well. I called up Lokesh to say the same and also told him that editor Philomin Raj has done an excellent job. Lokesh jokingly reminded me that he was the director, and I was only praising Philomin."
Philomin Raj, who is also editing Maharaja, is part of a strong technical crew of Nithilan Saminathan's Maharaja, including cinematographer Dinesh Purushothaman, and composer Ajaneesh B Loknath.
Apart from Vijay Sethupathi, Maharaja stars Anurag Kashyap, Mamta Mohandas, Natty Natraj, Abhirami, Arul Doss, Munishkanth, Boys Manikandan, Singam Puli, Bharathiraja, Vinod Sagar, and PL Thenappan.
