Zee Cinema’s world television premiere of The Master on Sunday

Tamil superstar Vijay plays lead role

Popular Hindi movie channel Zee Cinema’s world television premiere of the pan-Indian blockbuster The Master is on Sunday, 30 May at 08.00 pm. The Master is the Hindi dubbed version of Vijay's Tamil blockbuster Master, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.   

During the lockdown, Hindi movie channels witnessed a remarkable increase in viewership, and the dearth of Bollywood movies played a crucial role in elevating the popularity of south Indian movies among Hindi-speaking audiences. Zee Cinema, with its world television premiere of The Master, will cater to a large segment of audiences who tune into southern movies dubbed in Hindi.  

The Master revolves around the story of two people, JD, a college professor, and Bhavani, a criminal. Bhavani exploits youngsters at a juvenile detention centre. Things take a new turn in their lives when JD is appointed as a teacher at the detention centre. As days go by, events lead him to uncover a heinous plot by Bhavani. What follows is a thrilling battle to protect the juveniles and unmask Bhavani.  

Vijay plays the role of JD in The Master, while acclaimed actor Vijay Sethupathi can be seen enacting the role of the deadly Bhavani. The supporting star cast includes Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, and Andrea Jeremiah.  

Talking about The Master, director Lokesh Kanagaraj said, "The two big stars Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi coming together added to the scale of the movie. It was a great experience to work with them. I wanted this movie to have a mass appeal. When your work receives so much love and appreciation from the audience you automatically get inspired to make more movies to entertain them."  

"This was my first film with Vijay sir and it was really exciting for me to share the screen with him. Working with a sensation and an icon made this experience even more exciting for me. It was great to be a part of the movie where some of the best artists like Thalapathy Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Anirudh and Lokesh came together," said Malavika Mohanan about the movie.
