Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced the decision to open a cinema hall as the first state in the country.
Locked theater from mid-March. For six and a half months, the entire entertainment industry has been in the throes of a black cloud of fear. It is true that Hindi films have been released on the OTT platform, but Hategona has been released on the digital platform while co-directing Bengali films. Because according to film experts, the demand for Bengali films on OTT platform is relatively low. The Bengali film business is largely dependent on the box office. In such a situation, before Durgapuja, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee gave good news for Tollywood.
On Saturday, she announced on Twitter that when everything is back to normal, travel, drama, open-stage theater, movies, music shows, dance performances, recitations or magic shows could all start. From October 1, these can be introduced in accordance with other health rules, including physical distance. The maximum number of visitors and participants can be up to 50. Wearing a mask and using a sanitizer will be mandatory.
Tollywood welcomed the decision of the Chief Minister with open arms. Jeet, Nusrat, Dev all thanked Didi in a tweet.
