Tamil Nadu government allows special shows for Vijay’s ‘Bigil’

Bigil creative producer Archana Kalpathi has thanked the Chief Minister and the government of Tamil Nadu for allowing special shows.

The Tamil Nadu government, late on October 23, announced that the screening of special shows for the Actor Vijay-starrer Bigil will be allowed.

It was just on October 23 that the Minister for Information and Publicity Kadambur Raju said that there would be no special early shows or fan exclusive ones for the film. Screenings for the film were expected to begin only from 10 a.m. The decision to restrict special shows, the Minister had said, was to keep a check on theatres charging exorbitant prices for tickets — much above the government mandated price.

From October 23 evening however, many fans of actor Vijay took to social media and shared pictures of tickets procured for the early shows on October 24. Under the hashtag #BigilFDFS, fans shared pictures of their tickets for shows that are scheduled to begin as early as 4 a.m.

Archana Kalpathi, the creative producer of Bigil, tweeted thanking the Chief Minister and the government of Tamil Nadu for allowing special shows for the Deepavali weekend.

Apart from Bigil, Karthi-starrer Kaithi is also scheduled to release on October 24 for the festival weekend.
