Varun Dhawan & Kriti Sanon support MAI’s plea after Delhi govt shuts down cinema halls

However, now the Multiplex Association of India’s (Mai) has shared a letter, requesting the government to reconsider the decision and to reopen Delhi cinemas. Considering the last lockdown caused a fortune for the film industry and the movies were shifting forward, costing more money, MAI now asks the government to reconsider it.

Moreover, referring to the period from March 2020, the letter mentioned that it was “undeniably the most challenging” time for the film industry. The letter also mentioned that in the meeting, the delegation requested for the Deputy Chief Minister’s intervention in the reopening of Delhi cinemas.
MAI letter stated that the cinemas are safe and have enhanced safety protocols. “The delegation highlighted the adverse economic situation being faced by the film and cinema industry due to COVID induced multiple shit downs since March 2020. Deputy Chief Minister was informed that the Government’s decision to shut down Cinemas in Delhi while enforcing the ‘Yellow’ alert of the graded response action plan (GRAP) has caused massive uncertainty leading to big fil releases, such as Jersey being cancelled,” a part of the letter read.
