There were reports of Sunny Deol upsetting the Government’s post-Covid policy of allowing only 50 percent of the total seats in movie theatres to be filled. According to reports, if the Government has given the allowance of full 100 percent theatre attendance it is because of Sunny Deol. However sources close to the Government have denied it.
The source says, “It was a decision based entirely on the economic reality, also the number of Covid cases have been going down, and the movie business needs help,”
“Ek toh pehle hi 50 percent audience nahi aa rahi tthi. Abb jo bhi aa rahi tthi who bhi nahi(we were not getting 50 percent audience. Now whatever little movie attendance we were getting would be lost in the fear of who’s sitting next to you)” says a leading producer.
