The release of Master is likely to be postponed due to coronavirus outbreak.
Master, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, will have Thalapathy Vijay essaying the role of a dean. Going by the photo of an ID card that's doing the rounds on the internet, it is evident that the actor plays John Durairaj aka JD, Dean of Students' Association, at St Jeffery's College of Arts and Science.
Though the storyline of Master has been kept tightly under wraps, it is rumoured that Master has been inspired by Korean movie Silenced. However, sources close to the film unit claim that this Vijay-starrer is an original film.
