The Ministry of Home Affairs has finally allowed the reopening of movie theatres from October 15, 2020, with 50% occupancy. They were all shut down owing to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier in March. Now, the theatre owners are allowed to open them in areas outside containment zones. This initiative has been welcomed by members of the film fraternity who have expressed their happiness and gratitude about the same on social media. We’ve got something more to boost our readers’ excitement. 

Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter starrer Khaali Peeli is going to be the first Bollywood movie to be released into the theatres post lockdown. Yes, you heard it right! The Maqbool Khan directorial will hit the theatres screens on October 16, 2020. The movie was earlier released on an OTT platform back on October 2, 2020. Apart from this, the Tamil movie Ka Pae Ranasingam featuring Aishwarya Rajesh and Vijay Sethupathi will also have a theatrical release on the same date.

Earlier, Khaali Peeli was also screened at the drive-in theatres of Bengaluru and Gurugram. Here’s what trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted about the same, “This should come as music to ears of filmbuffs & industry people, but as bad news for those who predicted Bollywood doom. 6 shows of Khaali Peeli in a make-shift Drive In cinema in Gurgaon in weekend are all sold out. One yesterday, two today and three tomorrow. At 999/- per car.” Apart from India, the movie was also released in Austria, Singapore, Netherlands, Mauritius, Africa, and Fiji.

Already flopped. Indian theatres are purposely not releasing numbers to avoid embarrassment since barely anyone in India is going to theatres due to boycotts, but you can check out international collection numbers for Khali Peeli online. In the US, this ghatia “film” made only around 300$ across ELEVEN theatres which had multiples show times across across multiples days! Movie tickets in the US are usually around 10-15$ per person, which means AT MOST, 30 people across the entire US saw the movie LMAO

Not every Bollywood stars responsible for SSR death so we can't blame every one I wish justice for sushant as soon as possible

It’s not just about Sushant. We are boycotting because of several reasons (Bollywood links with the underworld, ISI, anti-national and anti-Hindu elements etc.). His death was just the tipping point and the public has finally had enough. The fact that some in Bollywood STILL think that the backlash against the dirty industry is solely over nepotism, shows that they just don’t understand Indians. This anger has been a long time coming and Bollywood can only blame itself.

Zee plex eww. To watch it on Zee5 or TV u have to buy ticket. This strategy was so sick. They might have released it on Zee5 directly. They have not done it so, this is good to release it in cinemas.
