Vijay-Lokesh Kanagaraj's Master was going through many uncertainties during the lockdown. After much deliberation, the team had convinced TN government to permit 100% capacity in theaters and announced the release date as Jan 13. Now, TN govt had to revoke the decision after the intervention of the Central Government citing violation of COVID guidelines. Also, Vijay has a huge market in Kerala and when Kerala government had given a green signal for the opening of theaters, the team was relieved. However, the internal issues between the producers and exhibitors of Kerala have given rise to uncertainty regarding Master's release in God's Own Country. Discussions on reopening theaters are progressing.
