Vijay's Master is gearing up for theatrical release tomorrow. Thalapathy fans who had been waiting with bated breath can't wait to catch all the action on the big screens. The advanced ticket booking opened up a few days ago and all the theatres are running houseful for all shows on the first day. Expectations are riding high on this movie as Master will be the first Tamil movie to hit theatres after the pandemic shutdown. Filmmakers are hoping to make up for the losses incurred in production costs because of the coronavirus lockdown.
Just a day ahead of Vijay's Master theatrical release, some miscreants leaked portions of the movie on torrent sites. This has not only enraged Vijay fans but also pained filmmakers.
Angry Kollywood celebrities have taken to Twitter to appeal against piracy of the movie stating that a lot of efforts go into the making of a movie.
Here's a look at the tweets.

To understand that a movie is made with the livelihood of thousands at stake, it only requires some common sense. Be true to your inner self and do not promote piracy by sharing leaked videos of movies irrespective of your likes and dislikes.#MasterFilm #MasterPongal— Sudha Kongara (@Sudhakongara_of) January 11, 2021
