Ahead of the release of her forthcoming film “Thalaivii”, actress Kangana Ranaut has urged the Maharashtra government to allow theatres to open up and “save” the film industry from “dying”.
Kangana took to her Instagram Story to make the appeal. She said: “Cases in Maharashtra have declined requesting Maharashtra Government to #openupcinemas in Maharashtra and save the dying film industry and theatres business.”
On Tuesday morning, she penned another note on her Instagram Story.
“In Maharashtra, restaurants, hotels, offices, local trains everything is open but movie theatres are shut because of Covid, according to Maharashtra government Covid only and only exclusively spreads in the movie theatres.”
“Thalaivii”, a biopic based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
