Vijay-Vijay Sethupathi starrer ‘Master’ continues its domination at the box office as the film entered the elite Rs 200 crore club. It is the fourth successive Vijay film after ‘Mersal’, ‘Sarkar’ and ‘Bigil’ to achieve this feat. Along with the aforementioned three films, ‘Master’ has also become the fourth consecutive film to gross over Rs 100 crore from Tamil Nadu box office alone. The fact that it has managed to achieve such a phenomenal feat despite the pandemic and the 50% audience restriction in theatres speaks a lot about Vijay’s massive stardom and the humongous reception that the film has got.
‘Master’ hit screens on January 13 after almost a 9-month long delay. Its release has given a major booster to the film industry that has been severely hit due to the pandemic. Apart from the excellent performance in the domestic markets, ‘Master’ is also making waves in international markets. Recently, it became the highest grossing movie for the opening weekend, globally.
