Trade pundits in the Movie Industry are saying that this lockdown in India may go further up to May 1 and until then we may not expect governments to allow Theaters to open. Some say even after May 1, there are high chances that the pandemic spreads through mass gatherings and thus governments may think of other choices or rules about Theaters.
In China, recently they have opened the Theaters by decreasing the occupancy to 25% capacity of the Theater. For suppose if the Theater has 1000 seats, now it has to allow only 250 people to watch the film. This rule somehow works wonders for China as they are just relaxing after the 70-80 day lockdown. Now the people are flocking the Tourist places and yearning for entertainment and relief from the lockdown stress.
Theaters re-opening in China have spread smiles for the Indian Movie Producers too! The 'Super 30' film produced by Reliance Entertainments is the first Indian film to be released in China after the Corona virus lockdown. 'Super 30' team has recently plied for the Censor Certificate in China and if the proceedings go as planned the film would release very soon!
'Super 30' starred Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar, IIT Tutor from Bihar. The film was directed by Vikas Bahl of 'Queen' fame. The film is an Inspirational saga and thus exempted from Entertainment tax in many States in India. The film became a big hit and amassed critical acclaim too.
