Amidst growing cases of Covid, Maharashtra government has decided that movie theatres will be shut down again. Apart from theatres, restaurants, and others, public places will see heightened restrictions across the state. Currently, the state accounts for 58% of nationwide Covid cases. In such a situation, governments’ decision to order theatres to shut down seems to be the only option.

Maharashtra reported 49,447 new COVID-19 cases and 277 deaths in the last 24 hours, according to the state health department on Saturday. The active cases in the state stand at 4,01,172.

Meanwhile, Karnataka, which is also seeing a spike in cases has imposed restrictions on the theatres’ capacity. According to the new directives theatres will be allowed to have only 50% occupancy from 7th April. This development comes in after Kannada star Puneeth Rajkumar met Chief Minister BS Yediurappa requesting him to allow 100% occupancy till the 7th. Puneeth’s film Yuvarathnaa released in theatres this week and 50% occupancy would have hit his movie collections.
