The Maharashtra government declared on Saturday that movie theatres will open in the state on October 22. The decision was made after several discussions with filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who demanded that the CM reopen the theatres in order to restart the cinema business. Rohit launched his grandiose cop universe film, Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar, for a Diwali release shortly after the reopening news. It’s been pouring announcements in Bollywood since then.
