Earlier, it was reported that out of Rs 200 crore plus worldwide collection, Rs 100 crore plus came from Tamil Nadu alone. And now, as tweeted by trade expert Kaushik LM, out of this Rs 100 crore, Rs 10.09 crore has come from Chennai alone. This is a big feat considering the film is still running in theatres with a 50 per cent occupancy rate and it’s been 15 days since Master hit the screens as the big Makar Sankranti release this year.

Meanwhile, Master’s OTT release has upset the theatre owners who have put a special demand in front of the makers. As shared by the inside sources from the industry, the theatre owners have asked the producers to share an additional 10 per cent collections of the film from the two weeks with them. The request was first refused by the makers. However, another meeting in the same regard is still underway.
Apart from Thalapathy Vijay, Master also features Malavika Mohanan and Vijay Sethupathi in important roles. The film has set the Box Office on fire all over the world and it would be interesting to see how it fares on the OTT platform! Watch out this space for all the latest updates on Master!
