With the surge in COVID 19 cases as new variants are making it difficult to step out, Maharashtra theatres continue to stay open and welcoming to the audience. From Spider-Man: No Way Home to 83, films released in December are still finding themselves collecting box office numbers, irrespective of the constant rise in COVID 19 cases. As of 8th January 2022, Mumbai has reported around 20,000 cases for three consecutive days noted by journalist Faye D’Souza in her latest news post on Instagram.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, who is the serving CM of Maharashtra has set out new guidelines to contain the spread of the COVID virus. However, when you look at the pointers some look pretty extreme, whereas others are relaxed making you wonder if we will reach a plateau stage in COVID numbers when it comes to Mumbai.
With the restriction in movement and an established curfew, the CMO has shared on Twitter the revised guidelines which include the shutting down of schools and colleges until the 15th of February 2022 and the shutting down of swimming pools, spas, gyms, wellness centres. However, malls, restaurants and cinema theatres in Mumbai are going to operate with 50% capacity, taking in only fully vaccinated individuals.
This specific development in terms of Maharashtra theatres take place after BMC reports (07.01.22) that in Mumbai 96% of patients on oxygenated beds are unvaccinated and, only 4% are vaccinated. Maharastra Cheif Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s new measures are implemented throughout the state now for its well functioning.
Presently, Spider-Man: No Way Home, 83, Pushpa: The Rise, The Matrix Resurrections and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui are films that are running strong in theatres. Amongst the list, Spider-Man: No Way Home has perched to become the third highest-grossing Hollywood film in Indian History. Meanwhile, Allu Arjun’s surprising hit Pushpa has massively gained popularity with the passaged of time.
