Master, which has been directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, will be released in three languages. The film has been dubbed in Telugu and Hindi. It will become the first major pan-Indian release of 2021.
The film features Vijay in the role of a college professor with a violent past. It also stars Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist.
Master, which also stars Malavika Mohanan, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj and Andrea Jeremiah, has been produced by Xavier Britto. It marks the maiden collaboration of Vijay and director Lokesh Kanagaraj.
A couple of months ago, reports emerged that Master was offered a Rs 125 crore deal by Amazon Prime for an exclusive release. However, this report was eventually put to rest by the film’s executive producer Lalit.
