Film Master box office updates: Actor Thalapathy Vijay-Vijay Sethupathi starrer Tamil film Master is off to a good start. It the first big-ticket film to release in theatres in about nine months.

While the Tamil Nadu government has reduced the occupancy in theatres to 50 per cent from 100 per cent due to rise in COVID-19 cases but the decision has not impacted the film's business as such.
