Oops! Pahlaj Nihalani appeals to postpone movie releases

The demonetization that was announced on November 8, 2016 has surely affected the Bollywood industry majorly. Not only the common man is suffering, it seems the B-Town releases are also sailing in the same boat. As per the recent developments, Pahlaj Nihalani has appealed for a delayed release for the upcoming movies in 2016, due to demonetization.

According to the recent reports, Pahlaj Nahalani, President, Movie Image Makers has written a letter to all the filmmakers appealing them to postpone the release of their movies to the next year. Pahlaj Nihalani has mainly stressed on the effects of demonetization and how shortage and unavailability of cash had resulted in poor box-office. The larger section of the audience is avoiding buying tickets online and most of the single screen cinemas are dependent on cash sales.

 

Oops! Pahlaj Nihalani appeals to postpone movie releases

 

The Chief of censor board, Pahlaj Nihalani quoted, “I appeal that all the film releases for the rest of November and December 2016 should now be postponed. Since December 30 is the deadline by when we expect the economy to re-start working smoothly, it may be wise for all film producers to consider not releasing their films before the situation reverts to normal. Only then we can expect a healthy interest in films to be revived.”

Well, this man has a valid point! The delay demanded by him might help in growth. The demonetization of old currency has genuinely affected the box-office collection of last three major releases. Be it Rock On 2, Force 2 or Tum Bin 2, the shortage of money has majorly reduced the daily gross collections of these films at the box-office.

We would love to hear from you on the same. What do you think about the delay on releases and demonetization of currency? Let us know in the comments section below!

  • Alia Bhatt is the sweetheart of Bollywood. The actress is friends with everyone in the industry, and the whole film industry loves her. It could be the perks of being the amazing person she seems to be. But, she has many people that do not belong to Bollywood, or her family, that are constantly looking out for her. They are all her best friends, she has attained over her lifetime.
  • Akshay Kumar has been one actor that, even in his 50s, does not look that old. The actor has maintained a physique that no actor of his age has been able to maintain. He is fit, and the whole country takes inspiration from him. But, one thing we forget about the actor is the various looks he has kept throughout his career. So we celebrate the different styles that we have seen the actor in.
  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
