Starring Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles, Tamil film Master (2021) has turned out to be a phenomenal success at the box-office. What makes its roaring success even more special is the fact that it has performed beyond expectations in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.
The film, which released on January 13, 2021, a day before Pongal, clocked 50 days in theatres on Wednesday. Commemorating this special moment, filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj took to Twitter and shared a behind-the-scenes video of the film’s climax. The BTS video features Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi’s face-off.
Thanking the two actors for the humongous success of the film, Kanagaraj wrote along with the video, “No matter how many ever times I say, it ain’t enough! Thank you, Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi.” The video has gone viral on the internet since.
