Producers get a hope after Alcohol sales!

It would be weird to say that no one was surprised to see people flocking outside wine shops for alcohol stocks. The crowds shocked even the governments and Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Delhi - who opened the wine shops seems to have earned more in excise taxes.

Delhi government announced 200% increase in tax from 5th May and the lines are still long. Many people, who complained about lack of food and occupation are happy to find money to buy alcoholic beverages.

While those harsh realities are unearthing, producers looking at the crowds at these wine shops got a hope that when film theatres will eventually open, there will be demand for tickets too, in same fashion.

Obviously, they don't think people will run for low budget films but they were completely unsure about even big films getting crowds in. With even the well-educated class in some or the other way trying to get their alcohol thrust quenched, producers think with 65% or 75% full houses as trial run they can release some well-known star films to keep theatrical business alive.

Let's see, if it plays that way or will governments decide to extend lockdown or not give any relaxations fearing more violent outbreak.
