Vijay promises to pay any loss for procuder if 'Master' fails

Director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s directorial 'Master' starring Vijay in the lead role, which was originally planned to release on April 9, has been postponed due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.

Master team has completed all the post-production works, and the movie will be reportedly released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi languages. Also, 'Master' will be Vijay's first film that will be released simultaneously in five languages. Now, the recent buzz is that Thalapathy Vijay is so positive about the success of the movie that he has promised to pay if there are any loss incured by the producers.

'Master' is already being marketed as 'Minimum Guarantee' (MG), as the business of 'Master' was completed even before its shooting wrapped up and it reportedly sold for around Rs 200 crore. However, the distributors who bought the movie, have now reportedly suggested that it is not possible to release the film in MG mode, considering the on going pandemic due to COVID-19. But Thalapathy Vijay, who has agreed to release 'Master' under the distributor system, is so confident about the film’s success that he has promised to pay the producers if there are any losses.

Both profit and loss are borne by the distributor under the MG system, but under the distributor system, the producer is liable for the loss or profit of the film. Also, this is the first time that a Vijay movie will be released under the distributor system.

In the film, Vijay will be essaying the role of a college professor and he will be pitted against a gangster, played by Vijay Sethupathi. Apart from the two actors, Malavika Mohanan, Andrea Jeremiah, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj and Arjun Das are part of the cast.

The film's technical crew comprises of composer Anirudh Ravichander, editor Philomin Raj and cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan.
