It’s the day of the ‘Khan’:Finally the day of the release of the movie ‘My Name Is Khan’ has come. Today, on 12th February, 2010, the movie has released. Finally the day of the Khan has come. He is hopeful that his fans will not let him down and will come to watch the movie. But the question is whether it will be released or not? According to the circumstances it seems little bit difficult that the movie will release.Shiv Sena put their all efforts to stop the promotion and release of the movie. And the no-show in the morning was the assurance of their victory. But later movie is screening by Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, Home Minister R.R. Patil, and Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagwe and Police Commissioner D. Shivanandhan. Later according to the news few of the multiplexers started screening the movie. Although there was no first show of the movie as theatre owners shied away from exhibiting the film following violence by the Shiv Sena. But later in noon they started screening the film and it is hoped that others will also do the same later in the day.
Multiplex owners meet Shiv Sena: For the release of the movie, the multiplexers are going to meet Shiv Sena head in Mumbai on Friday to take a final call. However, some of them have decided to stay back till the matter has been resolved. Before this on Thursday, multiplex and theatre owners had decided not to release the flick in Mumbai and near by areas as they thought it is very risky to screen the movie at this point and also the patrons would not like to come to watch the movie. Till the Thursday, there is no hope that the movie will release.
Different theater and Multiplexer screened the movie: Few of the cinema halls in multiplexes and theatres where the movie is running include Fun Cinemas which began its first show at 12 noon. Multiplex Fame started its first show at 2.30 p.m. These multiplexes are covered by extra security for the safety of people. Earlier, it was scheduled that the movie will be hit in 63 cinema halls in Mumbai. But after that when Shahrukh Khan came in this trouble because of his statement, it is doubtful that movie will release in all cinemas. On 12th Feb, 2010 multiplexes and major cinema owners were still closeted in a meeting with the distributors and producers of the movie to sort out the issue of adequate security as it is very much important. It is expected that decision will be taken later in the afternoon. Still there are some halls that did not ant to take any risk and is not screen the film. Few of them include the G-7 cinemas, Apsara, Maratha Mandir, Dadar Plaza, Broadway and other single-screen halls.Share
