With Vijay’s Master all set to release on January 13 next week, the makers have released several new stills from the making of the film. Despite no trailer out yet, the team also have put out a couple of video promos that has raised anticipation for Kollywood’s first big-budget release in 2021 and first since the beginning of last year’s pandemic.
