With legendary actor Soumitra Chatterjee testing positive for Covid 19, the entire Bengali film industry is shaken and in disagreement with the Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee’s decision to re-open movie theatres from October 1.
Actor and BJP minister Baabul Supriy says, “I am very worried to know that Soumitrada, given his age. He is a great man with a great mind. The mind plays a great part in the recovery.I am sure he will pull out of this sooner rather than later.”
However Baabul feels Mamata Bannerjee should revise her decision. “ She has always misinterpreted the words and deeds of great men. That’s her forte.There is a wise saying that what Bengal thinks today is what the world thinks tomorrow. However I don’t think on this case—her decision to re-open movie theatres–is setting the right example . It is nothing but committing hara-kiri.”
Baabul requests the Bengal CM to shut movie theatres again. “Such a populist and anarchic decision should be immediately reversed. I say this , in spite of being a part of the film industry. Open-air theatres should open. Closed cinema halls should not be opened right now when pandemic numbers are surging.Mamata Bannerjee should immediately reverse her decision.”
