Twitterati Are Supporting MNS Activists After They Created Ruckus In PVR Mumbai Due To This Reason

Published on 7 August, 2018 at 1:21 pm By

Cinemagoers around the country are not allowed to carry their own food into the movie theatres and they have to pay the hefty prices for food inside the food court of the movie theatres. However, Bombay High Court in June directed the state government to take stringent actions to regulate the prices of food at multiplexes. After the petition filed by filmmaker Jainendra Baxi, the Court observed that the prices inside the movie halls are quite exorbitant and sometimes even more than the cost of the ticket.


Therefore, Maharashtra government passed a policy allowing the people to carry outside food inside the cinema halls and multiplexes from August onwards in the state. However, it appears like the multiplexes are not following the orders of the court.



In a surprising turn of events, the activists of the political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) created a brawl in front of the PVR cinemas in the Phoenix Mills at Lower Parel, Mumbai. Apparently, they were stopped from entering into the cinema hall because they were carrying outside food with them. While the MNS activists were trying to reckon with the situation, the theatre management called the police to stop the ruckus by MNS.



MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande alleged that the police was supporting the PVR management instead of going by the state government’s orders which said that the cinemagoers would be allowed to take outside food in the theatres from August 1.

While addressing the media, MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande said:


“We had booked fifteen tickets for a movie and we brought our own food. Police prevented us from entering the premises with the food so we told them, as per the state government resolution we are permitted to carry outside food. Police repeatedly spoke on behalf of the multiplex management, saying it was not allowed and stopped us.”

This incident has caught the attention of the Twitterati as they have reacted with supporting arguments for the actions of the MNS activists. Netizens have commented opinions on their rights to be allowed outside food in cinema halls and are also demanding regulated food prices inside the theatres.
