As Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) are among the biggest markets of the movies, this decision will certainly had an adverse impact on the flicks like Akshay Kumar starrer “Sooryavanshi” which is slated to release on March 24 and Irrfan Khan starrer “Angrezi Medium” that is going to hit the theatres tomorrow (March 13).

Bollywood and international markets

The trade analysts are of the opinion that corona virus scare will also affect the overseas business of the films as Middle-East, North America and Australia are pretty important markets and they contribute hugely in the collections of Hindi movies.

Postponing the release date

The release dates of some movies may get shifted now because releasing a movie in such an environment is certainly not advisable. Even if the cinema halls are operational, people will still avoid visiting the theatres as they are very crowded.

Corona virus has been trending for a long time now and here are some tweets in regard to Arvind Kejriwal’s decision:

Be safe and avoid crowded places!
