Adipurush, starring Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, will be released worldwide tomorrow. The film has been in the news for both positive and negative reasons, and anticipation is high. While advance booking is improving, we are now hearing about theatre owners doing their part to honour Lord Hanuman.
The producers recently announced that most theatres would leave one seat empty for Lord Hanuman as a mark of respect. While it is unknown who will participate, some theatre owners will carry on the practise despite the fact that the makers or distributors have not asked them to.
As per the report in Bollywood Hungama, Miraj and INOX theatres would see an installation of one special seat for Lord Hanuman during the screening of Adipurush. “The seats reserved for Lord Hanuman won’t be vacant. Multiplex chains like Miraj and Inox are going to install a small ‘aasan’ (seat) on which the idol or photograph of Lord Hanuman will be placed. Flowers will be offered to God’s idol or picture. The flowers will be replaced daily,” the source states and adds, “The distributors or makers have not instructed the theatres to do so. The exhibitors are doing it on their own out of their devotion to Lord Hanuman.
