The Tamil Nadu government has permitted 100 percent seating capacity in theatres, after the decline in the COVID cases in state.
The Tamil Nadu government’s move to allow hundred percent seating came just a day after actor Vijay urged Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami to grant permission ahead of his movie Master a day prior to Pongal.
“Tamil Theatres and Multiplex Owners Association had placed a request with the State Government to allow them to increase the capacity from 50% to a full house. The theatres will be permitted to screen movies with full capacity by following all the Standard Operating Procedure,” government order.
Meanwhile, the Congress leader Karti P Chidambaram has lashed out at the centre’s decision and said the move is without taking health concerns.
The decision on reopening of theatres is also politicising as Tamil Nadu is poll-bound and pongal is on the way with mega master movie.
