Expressing happiness with the mass ranking of the picture, the makers of Master tweeted on their official page, "Thalapathy's selfie with his fans in Neyveli is a talking point on social media now. The selfie, which has more than 134.2K+ retweets without quotes becomes India's most retweeted tweet. "KING OF SOCIAL MEDIA" tag is justified once again! #Master @actorvijay."

On the work front, Vijay is awaiting the release of his upcoming film Master directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. The thriller, which was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on April 9, 2020, was later postponed owing to the COVID-19 lockdown. The highly-anticipated movie will feature Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Nassar, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Sriman, Andrea Jeremiah Sanjeev, Srinath, VJ Ramya and Azhagam Perumal essaying key roles. Master is bankrolled by Xavier Britto under XB Film Creators in association with Seven Screen Studio.
Vijay is also a part of AR Murugadoss' next, tentatively titled Thalapathy 65, which is yet to be officially announced by the makers.
