"Master Will Never Release On..." - The Film Producer Confirms

  • 10 Jul 2020

One of the biggest disappointments for Vijay fans during COVID-19 lockdown is missing out on Thalapathy's most anticipated film of the year, Master. 

Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen on-screen together for the first time. The first look posters and songs have shot up their expectations further. Originally, the film was slated to hit the theatres in April. 

Rumors were rife that Master will see a digital release like Jyothika's 'Ponmagal Vandhal' and Keerthy Suresh's 'Penguin' which fared well on Amazon Prime. 

Now, the film's producer Xavier Britto has confirmed that Master will only release in theatres, not on any streaming platform. With a big budget spent making the film, it's not practical to choose the OTT path.

In an interview with Vikatan, Xavier said: “Vijay is very clear about it. He wants Master to release only when theaters reopen. It could be this Diwali or next Pongal.”

While it makes sense for low-budget films to choose OTT platforms, films like 'Master' will be the pulling factor to bring in the crowd to the theatres once reopened.
