“Despite beginning the year on a muted note due to the impact of the second wave of the pandemic, the second half of the year has witnessed an uptick in the recovery. This was inspite of the third wave of the pandemic affecting business operations in January and for most of February, said Kapil Agarwal, Joint Managing Director.
He added,“Easing of occupancy restrictions and steady release of movies have led to a bounce back in CDC revenues, while advertisement revenues have also begun to see a gradual uptick. In the last few months, a number of movies irrespective of the budget and genre have been huge hits, proving that moviegoers are returning to theatres in large numbers. In addition, the acceptance of mass appeal South and other regional movies across India is a healthy sign of the industry’s expansion. It will benefit all industry participants”.
