The exhibition sector suffered the maximum during the pandemic. Many producers opted for a direct digital release and this affected the theatres which had to stay shut for most of 2020 and 2021. Last year, theatres were running with full force but several films flopped big time. The scenario has improved drastically in 2023. The weekend gone by has been historic as Gadar 2 emerged as a blockbuster. OMG 2, despite the adult theme, also did well and so did Rajinikanth’s Jailer. Bollywood Hungama yesterday had reported that even the holdover releases like Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, Meg 2: The Trench, Oppenheimer, Barbie, Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning – Part One etc were running house full.
