It’s been over a year since the showbiz industry has been facing the adverse effects of the COVID 19 pandemic. The deadly virus has claimed lakhs of lives and not just the shootings were stalled, the theatres were also shut across the nation. Although theatres have opened up in several states, the Maharashtra government was yet to take a call on the same. And now as per the recent update, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had decided to re-open the theatres from next month.

Talking about the same, the official Twitter handle of Chief Minister Office Maharashtra revealed that the theatres will open from October 22 along with proper health guidelines. However, the government is currently working on the standard operating procedure for the same. The tweet read as, “Chief Minister Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray has announced that cinemas and theatres in the state will be allowed to open after October 22 in compliance with health norms. Work is underway to prepare a detailed SOP in this regard and it will be announced soon.”
