The coronavirus cases are rising once again and India is seeing the ghastly second wave of the virus. The Bollywood industry is again upset as many actors are getting infected, shoots are getting delayed and no audience can visit the theatres.
People were getting their lives back on track by adapting to the ‘new normal’ situations. The director of the film Uri-The Surgical Strike and Immortal Ashwatthama, Aditya Dhartalk talks about the current situation of the film industry.
Talking about the importance of entertainment and cinema in our lives, the director said:
“Eventually as a culture, we Indians love to mingle and go out and eat food, meet friends. We don’t have a lot of things for entertainment. It is mostly cinema, clubs, malls and restaurants. So, theatres and cinemas play a very important role [in our lives]. I am really hoping that once we have the vaccination going — and it is happening at a good speed so far — things will improve,”
The 38-year old director said people will come in large numbers in cinema halls after people have received the vaccine.
“At least when we achieve 50% vaccination in the majority of cities, then way more people will start going to cinema halls. Producers will also have the confidence of releasing big films simultaneously. It is a process. I feel it will gradually increase. It will pick up in June and July, it will be slightly better because I am hoping by then there would be 50% of the population vaccinated in major cities. So, I think that will open up the theatrical space way more than what it is right now,”
Waiting for things to get back to normal so that people can once again live their normal lives.
