- On January 4, the Tamil Nadu government ordered the release of the movie in full force
- The Madras High Court gave priority to the reprimanded economic issues of the state in the event of an epidemic
- Court orders to open only theaters with 50% seats
More than five hundred film dramas are awaiting release across the country. Two days ago, the Film Federation of India made the demand to Home Minister Amit Shah. In contrast, the Madras High Court rejected the Tamil Nadu government’s decision to open theaters in the state with full force.
The decision came before the lame
The Tamil Nadu government, at the request of actor Vijay and Silambarson, had announced to occupy 100 per cent of the theaters before Pangal. The master of victory and Silambarson’s wa shwaran will be released in the cradle. Earlier, theater owner, distributor, southern film producers met CM EK Palaniswami and demanded an end to the power of cinema halls.
Following the decision, the home ministry sent a letter to the government secretary, saying the government’s decision violated central guidelines, where theaters were to open in October last year with only 50 per cent occupation.
Theaters are safer than transportation
The federation says the transportation sector is also operating at 100% capacity, but our cinema halls and theaters are more secure with a 50% seating limit. Our theaters are more secure than the transport sector. Our movies are completely disabled in lockdown. To get it right again, we need a full energy job on festivals and holidays.
The letter further writes – especially in the coming years when there are festivals like Pangal, Sankranti, Lohri, Ran Utsav, Bhogali, Bihu and Republic Day. We again pray that the government should pay attention to the request to open the cinema with full force. We will take full care of the safety of the visitors.
Apart from the Home Minister, the Federation has made similar demands to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar and G. Kishan Reddy. The letter was written on behalf of S Thanur, president of the federation.
