Companies in Chennai and Bengaluru have declared a holiday on 22 June.
Chennai: Bizarre for many, but amazing and exciting for Rajinikanth's fans. In Bengaluru two 5-star hotels are planning to screen the much-awaited Rajinikanth starrer ‘Kabali'.
JW Marriot and Lalit Ashok in central part in Bengaluru will be screening Rajinikanth's 'Kabali' on Thursday.
One can enjoy this 'luxury' of watching their favourite star's latest film at a cost of Rs 1,300 per head; the online booking option is available too.
However, raising objection against the move, the Karnataka Film Chamber says only licensed theatres can screen movies and allowing hotels will be dangerous for the film industry in the long run.
Meanwhile, according to government rules, private screening of movies is allowed at places like hotels, but they can’t convert them into film theatres.
But the madness doesn't end here! The buzz is that companies like Bengaluru-based Opus Waterproofing and Chennai-based Fyndus India Pvt Ltd have even declared a holiday for their employees on the day the film is going to hit the theaters.
