English, Hindi films being screened


Providing a relief to the movie buffs, multiplexes in the city on Saturday resumed screening of Hindi and English films.

Following the indefinite strike call by JAC of producers, distributors of South India, theatres in the city stopped screening all films on March 2, the first day of the strike. The JAC is fighting against the monopoly of Digital Service Providers (DSPs) and the Virtual Print Fee (VPF) being levied by them allegedly against terms.

However, the new releases in Hindi and English languages were screened since VPF is being only imposed on regional language films.

While all the four multiplexes of chain companies and a few single screen theatres screened the films, Capital Cinemas, owned by the Suresh Productions whose head D. Suresh is leading the producers and distributors, remained closed on the second day also.
