By | November 25, 2020

There’s a reason why movie goers will celebrate Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari as the first of its kind. The film’s entire team and the producers at Zee Studios took a massive leap of faith when they stood by their decision to release the film in theatres. In an ingenious initiative titled #ChaloCinema, a hashtag trending widely on social media, the studio stood by their stand of backing theatres and bringing back the audience. It was a simple idea – the film was made for the big screen, it should release on a big screen. Bollywood came out strongly to support the reopening of theatres with the film.

Bearing testament to how the industry backs one another and stands united in the face of adversity, the support for Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is heartening. Shariq Patel of Zee Studios says, “The last few months have been turbulent in unprecedented ways. But we can see the signs of healing when so many colleagues, peers and fellow studios came out in support of our film. It’s a show of strength and a reminder that we will get by this rough time together. Cinemas are evergreen and no matter how bad it has been the last few months, we will emerge stronger and triumphant after this phase together.”
