Finally, after a long, the restrictions on theatres have been relaxed by state governments. Interestingly, the reopening has taken place ahead of Diwali festive season, which has always been a boon for box office. Now, with biggies like Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger, Sultan and Shah Rukh Khan superhits re-releasing, theatres are expected to be flocked to some extent.
While the restrictions all over the country have been relaxed, there’s still a scare of coronavirus amongst the people. Also, theatres are permitted for screening with only 50 per cent of its occupancy. Owing to such conditions, big banners have put a hold on their upcoming releases and therefore, there’s less enthusiasm amongst cinema lovers. Now, in such a situation, YRF has come to the rescue.
