Many people from across the country welcomed this move of the government as theatre halls were closed for past 7 months due to the COVID 19 outbreak. Reports says that the number of COVID 19 cases has also seen a decline in the past weeks which could have made the government to make this important decision.
However, a couple of weeks ago, when Tamil nadu government allowed theatres to function with 100 % occupancy ahead of “Master”, “Eashwaran” release, Centre intervened and reversed the decision pointing out the virus spread. Many people also criticized the government and actor Vijay who personally phone called the chief minister and requested him to allow 100 % occupancy.
