We Indians are obsessed with watching movies on the big screens. After all, Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world, as it produces the maximum number of movies. We think of actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Rajnikanth as our idols, and they have inspired many to pursue a career in acting. We know we will rush to our nearest cinema hall to watch the much-awaited films. In developed cities, there are theatres and multiplexes where people can go and watch a movie on big screen. But what about small villages?
It is quite evident that villages don’t have proper access to movie theatres, and even internet to enjoy such leisure time. There may be a chance that villagers might have never seen many inspirational films that are based on the village scenarios like ‘Padman’ and ‘Dangal’. But even they have the right to enjoy such kind of entertainment, right?!
What’s more interesting about these mobile theaters is the fact that these are essentially ‘trucks’ that have been converted into theaters, that can travel to various rural areas and screen films there.
As Satish Kaushik himself watched the movie ‘Baahubali 2’ in a mobile theatre and was quite impressed by the sound and picture quality, he decided to provide such an experience to the rural people on a larger scale.
Although the government has not funded the project, the project is backed by entrepreneur and founder of ‘Picture Time’, Sushil Chaudhary, who introduced this concept to provide affordable cinematic experience to the ones who cannot spend too much money on entertainment.
