The movie theatres in Maharashtra reopened today after a gap of several months. Theatres are directed to operate at 50% capacity and only with fully vaccinated staff. Moviegoers, however, will be allowed even if they are not vaccinated. Theatres are mandated to be sanitised after every show, and masks must be worn at all times. Will cinemagoers return to the movie theatres? Will OTT platforms continue to rule the roost or can they coexist with movie theatres? Will the Indian film industry make steady financial recovery after suffering losses through the brutal second covid wave? Watch our very special #BackToCinemas edition of the India Development Debate with Kamal Gianchandani, CEO, PVR Pictures & President, Multiplex Association of India, Sanjay Gupta, Director & Producer, Kunal Sawhney, COO, Carnival Cinemas and Komal Nahta, Film Trade Analyst.
