Filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj, who made a splash with his first film Maanagaram and then with Kaithi, has teamed up with Thalapathy Vijay for the first time. Titled Master, the regular shooting of the film commenced last year and without a big break, the filmmaker has wrapped up the film in style in 129 days.

Lokesh Kanagaraj took it to Twitter announcing the same. He tweeted: "#Master It’s a WRAP129 days of shoot w/out break! This journey has been very close to my heart. Thank you @actorvijay anna for believing in me & my team ! Pulling off such a Himalayan task wasn’t easy w/out my direction team. Proud of you boys".

The film will see Vijay Sethupathi play the antagonist. Malavika Mohanan, last seen playing a key role in Karthik Subbaraj’s Petta, has been signed as the leading lady. The film also stars Andrea, Arjun Das and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj in important roles.

Bankrolled by Xavier Britto under XB Film Creators the film will have music by Anirudh Ravichander, Sooryan will crank the camera and Philomin Raj will take care of editing.
