As per the latest reports, Master’s phenomenal theatrical run might come to an end next week as the film has released on Amazon Prime Video. The streaming giant usually has a 50-day window for films, which means that they stream a film after it completes 50-days of theatrical run.

However, the move has irked theatre owners and exhibitors. It is being said that producer Xavier Britto is making plans to amicably solve the problems with distributers. Rakesh Gowthaman, owner of Vettri Theatres told Indian Express, “It is ultimately a producer’s choice on what to do with his movie. But we need more transparency. If we were told that this film would come out on OTT within 20 days of its release, then we would have agreed upon different terms to maximize our profits.” Also Read - BTS' Permission To Dance and Thalapathy Vijay's Master Become Most Used Twitter Hashtags 2021
