Is Vijay’s Master movie inspired from Korean film Silenced?

After the massive success of Bigil, Vijay announced that he will team up with young filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj. Ever since the film was announced, fans got excited as this marks the first time collaboration of a senior actor with a young filmmaker. Naturally, there is a lot of expectation behind the film because of their combination.
On New Year’s Eve, the makers of Thalapathy 64 announced that the film is titled Master. The first-look poster was a major hit with the audience. In the poster, we see Vijay looking intensely at the camera. There is also a blurred look in the poster which indicates that it’s a point of view of the person he bashed.
Now, there are fresh reports that Master movie was inspired by the Korean Film named Silence. Reportedly, this film dealt with a teacher putting a full stop to sexual violence in a school. In Master, Vijay expects to essay the role of a college professor and these portions will be filmed in Delhi.
However, sources close to the team of Master vehemently denied the rumors and said that Lokesh has penned an original script for the film along with writers Rathnakumar, Pon Parthiban, and others. Master’s shooting is progressing at a brisk pace in Chennai. The next schedule will commence in the first week of January.
