Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ will not be shown at Mumbai’s iconic Aurora theatre, owner says he’s in depression – Times of India

While the commerce pundits are predicting that Rajinikanth’s subsequent movie ‘Annaatthe’ will get a bumper opening, Mumbai’s Aurora theatre that’s identified to be one of the best cinema corridor to look at first-day first present of Rajinikanth movies will be in complete darkness on that day.

Nambi Rajan who is a large Rajinikanth fan, has been showcasing all of the famous person’s movies for the final thirty years is at an emotional loss. He stated, “It is not a financial loss but the emotional loss that is hurting me the most. And it’s because I cannot play Rajni sir’s film at my cinema hall.” He cites a couple of causes for not having the ability to display the movie at Aurora. He stated, “The big players have entered the distribution sector and therefore we missed a chance to distribute the film and secondly the 50 percent occupancy mandate by the Government would be of no use to our cinema hall nor for Rajni fans who come in large numbers to Aurora for every release.”

He additionally provides, “My theatre is a little damaged from the inside but had I got the distribution of the film I would’ve tried to manage. But now it is not possible and it is a very depressing feeling for me.”

ETimes instructed Nambi might converse to Rajinikanth about his drawback. He gave a retort, “He is too big for me to disturb at this time. He has just returned from the hospital.”

Nambi Rajan has been inundated with requests of Rajinikanth fan golf equipment in regards to the first-day first present of ‘Annaatthe’. He stated, “I had to tell them to do the ritual somewhere else. I think they will be doing at IMAX theatre in Wadala now.”

Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar too was eager on watching the movie at Aurora. Speaking about it he stated, “All the cinemas are recovering from the Covid implications and Nambi sir also is doing the same. I had a long chat with him about the status of the theatre and I am hoping he can restart that as soon as possible. We will be able to go there and watch movies like we used to. I would have loved to go and watch Rajni sir’s film at Aurora first day first show, too. I guess I will have to do that at the nearest multiplex now.”

Finally, the primary causes Nambi Rajan cites for Aurora failing to reopen on the discharge of a Rajinikanth movie, is not any help from the state authorities for single screens. He stated, “We have been pleading the government to help us in terms of financials and waiving off of taxes like other states have done. Unfortunately that has not happened in Maharashtra.”
