A big relief has come for hundreds of cinema owners across Maharashtra after union government announced to reopen of theaters from October 15. However, there is a condition that needs to be met.

As per the government’s order, all theater owners are directed to have an attendance up to 50% of their capacity under ongoing unlock 5.0.

After the news of reopening of theaters broke, film exhibitor Akshay Rathi couldn’t hide his triumph. This is what he has to say about this, “I could cry right! This is such big news for us. Finally, after months of dejection, we got this. Of course, now individual states have to decide but finally, the ball has got rolling. There’s some beginning. We now wait for the I&B Ministry to lay out the guidelines.”

At the same time, CEO of PVR Cinemas Kamal Gianchandani tweeted, “Heartfelt gratitude to @HMOIndia @MIB_India for allowing cinemas to reopen October 15 onwards. Urge State Governments to allow reopening in their States, on urgent basis. Early opening will lead to a quick recovery from the dire economic impact of the epidemic.”

Looking at the above decision by the government, many Bollywood stars like Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor started shooting for their upcoming films.
