Chennai, home to Vijay's most ardent fans, is leading the way in terms of box office collections. The film clocked Rs 5.43 lakh crore in the first-five days in the city.{blurb}

Though orders of the Tamil Nadu government to extend theatre occupancy to 100 per cent have been revoked, Vijay's fans have been breaking all social distancing norms, queuing up outside theatres.

Master was initially planned for theatrical release on April 9, 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. The makers of the film preferred to wait for a theatrical release, rather than releasing it on any over-the-top media service. Master was released on January 13.

Apart from Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi, the film features Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah, and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj in supporting roles.
