Srinagar- After the gap of three decades, the Bollywood charm of yesteryears made a comeback in Kashmir as for the first since its inauguration, the newly opened Cinema Inox in Srinagar remained jam-packed for the two consecutive days where 12 out of 14 shows were housefull. The theatre is screening Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan Starrer Pathaan.
Owner of INOX multiplex Vijay Dhar said that 14 shows (7 shows each on Wednesday & Thursday) have been screened.
“All the seven shows yesterday were houseful as all the seats remained occupied in the halls,” he said, adding that the Inox remained jam-packed yesterday.
He further said that two shows today recorded less participation due to the Republic Day celebrations, adding that five more shows were housefull like yesterday.
About the jam-packed cinema, he said that the shows remained booked for two consecutive days and that for the first time; Shahrukh Khan is being screened on a big screen in Srinagar, which is an achievement itself. “Pathan movie that is being screened nowadays is completely a worthwhile picture,” he said.
Pertinently, Kashmir’s first multiplex in Sonwar area of Srinagar was inaugurated by Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha in September last year. With this, cinema halls are back in Kashmir after a gap of three decades. (KNO)
