Responding to Tamil nadu Government’s decision on 100% occupancy in movie theatres, actor Aravind Swami who is known as one of the seasoned actors in Tamil film industry, posted a tweet denoting that it is not a right decision at this time. The actor’s tweet irked the fans of actor Vijay which is evident through the comment section of the “Thani Pruvan” actor’s tweet.
Tamil nadu government has agreed for 100 % occupancy in theatres ahead of actor Vijay’s Master and Silambarasan’s Eashwaran release. Responding to the request of The Tamil nadu exhibitors association and actor Vijay’s direct approach, Chief minister Edappadi Pazhaniswamy seems to have made the important decision.
“Now, therefore the Government hereby permit to increase the
seating capacity of Cinemas/theatres/Multiplexes from existing 50% to 100% by following the Standard Operating Procedure issued already and issue following amendment to G.O.Ms. No.820, Revenue and Disaster Management (DM-IV) Department, dated:31.12.2020″ read the official notice.
“Under Caption II, the following section shall be added in addition to the existing permitted activities: iv. The seating capacity of Cinemas/ theatres/ Multiplexes shall be permitted to increase from existing 50% to 100% by following the Standard Operating Procedure issued already. Further, in order create awareness among the spectators, the precautionary measures for Covid-19 shall also be screened during the show time.” it added.
