If you’ve been paying even half of your attention to Bollywood in the past few days, you may have been surprised at the sudden deluge of film release announcements. Multiple big-ticket releases like Atrangi Re, ‘83 and Bell Bottom have announced their release dates in one go. Films like Roohi and Bhediya too have announced the dates in which they will hit theatres.

These back to back announcements have definitely many eyebrows and one of them is top Bollywood producer Ronnie Screwvala. He took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

“Funny(Hysterical) that everyone announcing Movie release dates like magically all back to normal! FOMO in announcements and theoretical discussions on ‘clashes’! personally cant see till 300Mill vaccinated that it’s really safe to ‘GoToTheMovies’-no such thing as #HerdImmunity (sic),” said Ronny Screwvala.

Soon others joined the conversation. “I agree. Wonder what prompted this spate of announcements?” Hansal Mehta, the renowned filmmaker retweeted Screwvala’s tweet and wondered the same thing.

However, some requested the top producer to consider the current state of affairs in the Hindi film industry. “I hope you realise that the exhibition sector employs over 4 lakh Indians directly & millions of others indirect. Many of these people are the sole bread earners in their families. Is protecting their livelihood not important enough? Please think of the bigger picture,” wrote film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi.
