In a statement, they said, “National Cinema Day will bring together audiences of all ages to enjoy a day at the movies. It also celebrates the successful reopening of cinemas and is a ‘thank you’ to the moviegoers who made this happen. It is an invitation to those moviegoers who haven’t made it back to a cinema near them, yet.”
A few days back, on September 2, the Multiplex Association of India had announced that on September 16, to celebrate National Cinema Day many multiplexes will offer moviegoers to watch cinema at Rs 75 ticket. However, the decision has been postponed. Figuring why? Well, let us tell you. Scroll down to read.
Every average movie ticket costs Rs 150 to 200. However, the MAI had decided to give tickets at Rs 75 on September 16 to the moviegoers to welcome more footfall at the theatres. However, amidst all of these, Ayan Mukerji’s directorial Brahmastra has been released and it has created a buzz around the nation.
When the source was asked to give a proper reason behind it, the source responded, “The Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra is the dominant film at present and is doing great. It was strong even on Monday, which proves that it’ll do strong business on the second weekend too. Disney, who has released the movie, hence requested the multiplex association to push the celebrations by a week.”
