Are you the one who was excited to watch Thalapathy Vijay's much-anticipated film, Master in theatres on January 13, 2021? Well, we are sorry to inform you that you will not be able to do so. Why you may ask? As per the latest reports doing rounds, theatres are not opening in Kerala. Reportedly, the exhibitors strongly feel that if the state government is not helping them with a package for services such as free electricity charges and tax waiver, there is no point. Further, the distributors have their own set of demands. They are only willing for the cinema halls to open if the exhibitors clear their pending dues.

In a nutshell, it means until and unless the demands made by both the parties is not full-filled, Thalapathy's film's release is at stake. It was today when the makers had shared a fresh teaser from Master and now we hear this news about Kerala theatres.
