Earlier the government has announced that there will be a 100 percent occupancy for the Pongal releases Master and Eswaran. Both Vijay and STR have personally requested the CM this and hence this move. Though it seemed like a good move for cinema there was widespread public outrage regarding this including a viral letter from a doctor pleading with the actors to not opt for 100 percent occupancy in theatres. Now a letter from the Home Secretary has asked the TN government to adhere to the Ministry of Home Affairs’ (MHA) order under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, which was extended to remain in force till January 31,2021.
If the government does decide to go back to the 50 percent occupancy. There is every chance that it will be a complete Master Pongal. The distributors have said that they cannot screen two films with just 50 percent occupancy. It will be a Master Pongal all the way with Thalapathy Vijay dominating every screen in Tamil Nadu. This 50 percent move could very well be a masterstroke as all the Vijay fans can enjoy the film without any inconvenience. It will also ensure the safety of the audience. Let’s get ready for a massive Thalapathy celebration this Pongal
