Vijay's most-awaited Tamil film, Master was earlier scheduled to release on April 9, 2020. However, due to the lockdown imposed by the government to curb the Novel Coronavirus, the Lokesh Kanagaraj's directorial venture couldn't release on time.
But now, the report published in IBTimes is stating that the makers are trying to release Master on Navratri.
TN Government’s Decision
Last week, the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and the Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) had sought permission from the Tamil Nadu government to allow them to carry out post-production works of movies. Replying to TFPC and FEFSI's application, the TN government gave its nod on May 8, and informed that the post-production work can begin from May 11.
Lokesh Kanagaraj Begins Post-Production Work
After TN government's decision, Shankar was the first one to start post-production work of his film Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan in the lead role. Following his footsteps, Lokesh too began the post-production work of his film, Master. The director confirmed the news on his Instagram account. He wrote, "Go ahead, make my day #MASTER #POSTPRODUCTION."

Ever since the Vijay-starrer got postponed, Thalapathy fans can't keep calm to watch the film in theatres. The report published in IBTimes, states that the release of Master might be pushed to October (Navratri). However, the makers have not yet confirmed their plans.
