After entertaining Bollywood fans for years, Sunny Deol is doing her best to support the industry by staying off the screen as well. As we all know, Deol is now an elected MP from Gurdaspur district constituency. The angry man on the screen makes sure to give it back to the industry that has helped him reach all over the country.
The Gadar actor represents BJP and does his job quietly. Apparently he is the one who took the issue of the huge losses of exhibitors due to the restricted occupation of theaters in the central government. As the Covid-19 pandemic has already caused a great deal of damage by halting film releases, the new restrictions have not been welcomed by theater owners and the film industry.
Due to the same, Sunny Deol had a conversation with a group of ministers and managed to get a green signal. A source close to Bollywood Hungama says: “It was Sunny Deol who led the delegation of the film industry and met Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs of India, Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Amit Khare, Secretary, I & B Ministry and Anurag Thakur, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, a few days ago. He asked them to consider the request to allow theaters to operate at over 50% occupancy, and preferably 100% themselves.
Reportedly, Sunny Deol was joined by Kamal Gianchandani, President of the Multiplex Association of India, Sanjeev Bijli, MD PVR and Nitin Tej Ahuja, CEO of the Producers Guild of India, for the meeting.
Finally, the center has approved 100% occupancy with strict guidelines to follow.
“The ministers were kind enough to patiently listen to the argument and assured Sunny Sir that they would take this into consideration and pass a resolution soon. At the end of the day, all of the movie business helps everyone in the supply chain. This will only help the economy further, as the money generated from the sale of movie tickets keeps the business running for everyone, ”the source added.
