Sanjay Leela Bhansali is upset over this nationwide issue

The Covid-19 outbreak put a lot of businesses out of order including gyms, movie theatres, malls, travel etc. While most of them are operating again, cinema halls are still closed in several parts of the country. Celebrated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is quite upset with this fact and he made some really good points while addressing the situation recently.

Giving example of other businesses where people have to sit close to each (like in an airplane), Bhansali said, "The lockdown has ended. Shops, restaurants, gyms, stadiums have re-opened. Why not movie theatres? Is it because of the risk factor? In that case aircrafts too have people seated next to one another."

The filmmaker added, "To fly you need to present a medical certificate at the airport. The same could be the case at movie theatres, at least until the pandemic subsides. But re-opening of movie theatres is, I feel, imperative. Thousands of wage earners who depend on movie theatres for their income are rendered jobless. Because of Covid, the movie business is dying. We must revive business in the movie theatres before it is too late."
