Master achieves box-office collection of Rs.150 crores
The Co-Producer of the Vijay Starrer Master Tamil film, Lalith Kumar on behalf of the Seven Screen Studio has recently sent a legal notice to a private firm seeking compensation of Rs.25 crores for leaking some of the scenes of the film.
Pongal festival release, Vijay starter Master, the Tamil film with English title has been making huge collection of more than Rs.150 crores around the world in the last six days of the release of the film.
According to sources, this is the highest collection, of all the films of Vijay that were released so far. Master was directed by Lokesh Kanakaraj.
Though the TN government has restricted the sale of tickets to only for the 50 % of seating capacity in all cinema halls, Master has been making a huge collection, it is said.
When the producers of the film were keeping their fingers crossed over whether to release the film on OTTs, as have been released in the pandemic situation or to release them in cine theatres after the government relaxed to allow the people to watch films, it gave a little relief to the film producer to take the decision of releasing the Master in cine theatres. However, the TN government has imposed the ban restrictions of the filmgoers allowing just 50 % to watch films in theatres.
A few days ago, before the release of the film in cine theatres some of the scenes of the film started appearing in some websites, it is said.
Hence the producer of the film has decided to sue the concerned websites to seek compensation.
