Shows to begin as early as 4 a.m.

The State government, on Thursday, announced that theatres will be allowed to hold special shows for Vijay- starrer Bigil.

Minister for Information and Publicity Kadambur Raju, on Wednesday, said there would be no early screenings or fan-exclusive shows of the film. The shows were expected to begin only from 10 a.m.

The decision to restrict special shows, the minister said, was to keep a check on theatres charging exorbitant ticket prices.

However, trom Thursday evening, many fans of the actor took to social media and shared pictures of tickets procured for Friday’s special shows. Under the hashtag #BigilFDFS, fans shared pictures of tickets for shows that were 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, Kaithi starring actor Karthi is also scheduled to release on Friday.
