Master Update: Lokesh Kanakaraj Explains What’s Happening With The Delayed Vijay Film

An excerpt from the upcoming Deepavali Roundtable interview featuring Baradwaj Rangan, Lokesh Kanagaraj, RJ Balaji and others.

May be, I should ask you Lokesh, what is the update on Vijay’s Master?

Lokesh: Yes sir. I feel I need to clarify a bit about what’s happening with Master. I need to take one minute to talk about it. A lot of people have been asking for updates and all of us who are a part of the Master team have taken cognisance of these requests. It’s not that we haven’t seen them and it’s not that we’re delaying these updates purposely. The prime reason why we as makers cut a trailer or teaser is to get fans and the audiences to celebrate the star and the film. It’s purely for that purpose. 

Just like how there are so many fans who are disappointed in not being able to get a glimpse of the film even after waiting for so long, we too are equally or even more upset that we’re not able to show anyone what we have worked so hard to create. It’s a terrible feeling, and that’s what we are facing right now. 

Having said that, we feel there’s no logic to releasing a teaser or a trailer when there’s still no clarity on when this film would finally release in theatres. Releasing a trailer at such a point will not support the film in any way. 

But now that we’re hearing a lot of good news about theatres opening up, we too have begun to start thinking positively. The audience will keep getting regular updates from the Master team. I felt I needed to convey this to Vijay sir’s fans.
