Thalapathy Vijay's Master is continuing its successful run at the box office. Despite 50% occupancy in theatres, clash with Pongal release Eeswaran and OTT release on Amazon Prime Video, Master is garnering a huge response from the audience. The film starring Vijay Sethupathi as the deadly antagonist Bhavani, has earned the blockbuster tag already.
As per Film Tracker Kaushik LM, Master has crossed Rs 11 crore gross in Chennai city and has become Vijay's 5th film to achieve the feat. He tweeted, "Blockbuster #Master crosses the 11 CR gross mark in Chennai city. 20-days total city gross is 11.06 CR..The 5th #ThalapathyVijay film to cross the 11 CR mark."
Revealing that the Rs 11 crore mark was dominated mostly by multiplexes that complied central government's order to follow 50% occupancy in theatres, Kaushik added, "OTT release generally has the max. impact on City & multiplex-centric audiences. So after this, #Master's city numbers will slow down considerably. The 11 CR mark here (dominated by many multiplexes where 50% was strictly followed) is superb. Have to see how far more this can go!"
