A source from the exhibition sector told Bollywood Hungama, “She was one of the greatest singers ever and her demise has saddened everyone. The government of Maharashtra has declared a public holiday to mourn the demise of Lata Mangeshkar. Hence, several multiplex chains came together and voluntarily decided to shut down for a day. This is the least we could do following the demise of a singer who achieved so much in life and sang so many memorable songs in her long and illustrious career.”
