After almost eight months of lockdown, which seems to look like an eternity, the world is slowly reopening. After facing a huge loss in the theatre industry, cinema owners are now opening movie halls.
The Maharashtra government has finally allowed the theatres to be reopened from today.
According to reports in Mumbai Mirror, the theatres will open to 50 percent occupancy and no outside eatables will be allowed in cinema halls.
One of the first films that will be released on the big screen is ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’. The makers had released the trailer but never let out their release date as they were waiting for theatres to reopen.
This Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh, Fatima Sana Shaikh film will release on November 13 and will be the first film to release in theatres post lockdown.
Meanwhile, big releases like Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Sooryavanshi’ and Ranveer Singh starrer ‘’83’ will wait to see how these small releases fare and later announce their release dates.
Looks like Diwali is no more black-Diwali for theatre owners as film lovers will come out of their homes.
