Dhanush: Hope Vijay's Master will help theatre culture thrive
Vijay's Master is set for release on January 13, and it is expected that the film will bring crowds back to theatres
The whole of Kollywood is hoping that Vijay's upcoming film Master, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, will help revive the theatre business, which has taken a severe hit because of the pandemic. Despite following safety precautions, there has been no improvement in theatre footfalls ever since the lockdown restrictions were relaxed.
Now, Dhanush, in a tweet, has said that he is hoping that Master will help the theatre culture thrive. He wrote, "Vijay sir’s Master releases on January 13. It’s great news for cinema lovers and I hope watching movies with friends and family helps to thrive the theatre culture once again. Nothing like a theatre experience. Please take all the safety precautions and watch the film in theatres."
Recently, Vijay met Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and reportedly requested him to allow 100 per cent occupancy in theatres across the state (currently, only 50 per cent occupancy is allowed). This has been met with a lot of criticism, while Vijay fans have welcomed the request.
Master, set for release on January 13, co-stars Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist. Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Shanthanu, and Andrea Jeremiah are also part of the upcoming action thriller. Produced by XB Film Creators, the film has music by Anirudh Ravichander.
