'Thalapathy' Vijay's Master has turned out to be an astounding box office success, with the film currently being streamed on Amazon Prime Video since January 29. The mass masala action thriller directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj under Xavier Britto's XB Film Creators banner and released in theatres in India and several parts of the world as a grand Pongal treat on January 13, has since taken a phenomenal opening, with the makers revealing a while back that the film had reached the number 1 spot globally. Master has 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi, who is playing the antagonist, and has been a major USP alongside an electrifying Vijay. 

As Master continues to see good numbers in theatres despite being streamed on OTT, fans still continue to extensively debate on social media about the film's plot, performances of Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi, director Lokesh Kanagaraj's screenplay and Anirudh's music. Among the various notable aspects of Master, both before and after its release, was the cat owned by Vijay's character John Durairaj (JD) in the film. The Persian cat that appeared as Vijay's beloved pet in the film, was a show-stealer in a few scenes. Pictures of the Persian cat before Master's release evoked a big interest among fans, who wanted to learn more about its breed and possibly own one themselves. In that light, popular Tamil actor Sanjeev, who plays a supporting role in Master and is a close friend of Vijay in real life, informed fans on the current whereabouts of the Persian cat. Taking to his Twitter handle, Sanjeev told fans that the cat is now safe with his family, while sharing a photo of his daughter playing with it. He tweeted, "Yes! Your Assumption is right JD's Cat is safe." Check out the trending photo below: 

Master, which was delayed for nearly a year due to the pandemic, has since managed to live up to a majority of the fans' expectations, with compliments being showered on the team for an enjoyable packaged entertainer that has been celebrated in theatres. Master had sustained the test of time by not being released on any OTT platforms after there were speculations that it would skip its theatrical outing. Vijay, producer Xavier Britto, distributor Lalit Kumar and director Lokesh Kanagaraj in December informed fans that they would prioritize a theatrical release first, with their decision proving to be one that has yielded positive results for them as well fans and theatre owners, including the Tamil film industry, which is on a revival mode and are now lining up films to hit screens next.
