Hyderabad Buzz: Cine-goers turn skeptical!

Hyderabad: The Ludhiana multiplex blast had its impact on cine-goers in the city on Monday with the usually teeming cinema theatres wearing a deserted look.

Santosh-Sapna, Abids, received poor collections due to Sunday’s blast. “The impact of the blast was visible. Though Sapna’s seating capacity is 696, only 400 seats were filled during the matinee show, while at the 1,050-seat Santosh, not even 200 seats were occupied,” Santosh-Sapna general manager Mohammad Suleman Khan told media.

“The twin blasts still haunt Hyderabadis. And, the repeated checks by police too are affecting the collections,” Mohammad Suleman Khan added.

“Our collections dipped after the twin blasts. To instill confidence in our patrons, we have installed a door frame metal detector (DFMD), but still we are not getting our average collections,” Vijayalakshmi theatre proprietor P Paramesh said.

Meanwhile, the city police have intensified surprise checks on various theatres in view of the Ludhiana blast.
