A film that has been the talk of the town since it went on floors in October 2019, the 'Thalapathy' Vijay and 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi starrer Master smashed its way to theatres worldwide on Wednesday. The mass masala action entertainer directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj under Xavier Britto's XB Film Creators banner has taken Tamil Nadu by storm despite the State government's order for only 50% occupancy in theatres, with fans thronging cinema halls to catch Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi's showdown on the big screen. With theatres in TN packed with fans enjoying the film, XB Film Creators on Thursday officially dropped a massive announcement on Twitter in regard to the Master's Day 1 box office collections in Tamil Nadu. 

XB Film Creators in a short video tweeted that Master has collected 25+ crores in less than 24 hours at the Tamil Nadu box office, which is a staggering feat, especially since the occupancy in theatres in the state were ordered to follow 50% capacity in line with the COVID-19 norms. The pandemic has not stopped Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi fans to watch the latest mass action film, which has turned out to be a perfect commercial entertainer for the Pongal holidays. The official figures of 25+ crores in Tamil Nadu on Day 1 will no doubt give the entire team of Master a lot to cheer about, including fans, whose excitement after watching the film has been witnessed on social media to a great extent. 

According to reports, Vijay's Sarkar collected more than 30 crores on Day 1 in Tamil Nadu, with Master now following suit at the second spot. It is being stated that Vijay now holds the top four Day 1 openings in the state with Sarkar, Master, Bigil and Mersal leading the charge. With the weekend ahead and an overall positive word of mouth, including rave reviews from many in the film industry, we can expect the week one collections for Master as well to reach new heights. Theatre owners will be celebrating Master’s sensational opening, as the film has stood the test of time after being delayed from its initial April 2020 release.
