As we have just entered the third wave of Covid, the rules and regulations are getting strict day by day and these rules are affecting the box office business. As the Delhi Govt has again locked the state due to the increasing number of covid patients. In this lockdown period, the government recently took the decision of shutting down the theaters and the multiplex across the state. Well, this news had brought a huge crisis to the box office business. In the middle of this crisis Bollywood filmmaker, Karan Johar requested Delhi Government to open up the theatres.
Karan Johar took his Twitter handle and wrote, “We urge the Delhi Government to allow cinemas to operate. Cinemas are equipped with better ability to ensure a hygienic environment while maintaining social distancing norms as compared to other out-of-home settings. @LtGovDelhi @ArvindKejriwal @OfficeOfDyCM #cinemasaresafe”
Well, Karan’s this request has dropped him into trouble. Netizens bashed the filmmaker for making such a request amidst a Covid surge. One user wrote, ” Is he out of his mind?
Someone please tell him he’s talking about humans. It’s not just about cinemas being equipped. It’s about those humans who will build a crowd, starting right from their houses to the cinemas, and beyond!Ah! Wish privileged people go a little broader.”
Another one wrote, “Ha matlab log apne or apne parivaar ki life ko risk me daal de teri faaltu movies dekhne ke liye, is se tuje paisa milega par unko bimaari
Is he out of his mind?
Someone please tell him he's talking about humans. It's not just about cinemas being equipped. It's about those humans who will build a crowd, starting right from their houses to the cinemas, and beyond!
Ah! Wish privileged people go a little broader. https://t.co/W8cOIDmUxS

People are dying bcoz of covid and you are worried cinemas being affected.
You have earned soo much in years that these pandemics won't matter much to you.
I'm sure you can even help out those who work behind th scenes.
Stop this nonsense.
