Tamil Nadu government permits 100% occupancy in cinema halls

An order from the Tamil Nadu Government now permits 100% occupancy in cinema halls across the state. This latest announcement comes a week ahead of the Pongal festival, when big theatrical releases are generally scheduled. While the government says that the permission has been granted owing to reducing number of daily cases, it is hard to miss that Assembly elections are due in a few months.

The governments decision to allow 100% occupancy comes following the appeals by theatre owners associations to grant permission for higher occupancy. The major beneficiary of this announcement would be actor Vijay’s film Master, which is salted for a January 13th, Pongal release. The film was to hit screens sometime in Summer 2020, but had to be postponed owing to the pandemic and there were even rumors of the film taking the OTT Route.
