Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan never shies away from voicing his opinion. He always stands in support of the film and television industry, its workers, and other teams involved. Currently, the theatres in most parts of Maharashtra remain shut owing to Covid-19 restrictions. Even though the government has announced relaxations for certain sectors, cinema halls in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra continue to not operate. However, a few theatres are functioning in half-capacity in some parts of the state. Amidst all this, Varun Dhawan spoke about the shutting down of theatres.
Varun Dhawan shared a video shot this evening on his Instagram stories. The video shows a busy street with many shops and stores open. Seemingly, the video is shot at Bandra’s Link Road during evening hours. The video shows a busy Mumbai Street, while the country continues to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. It looks like, Varun, who was travelling, has shot the video from his vehicle. He questioned why theatres remain shut when everything is open.
Varun Dhawan captioned the video, “Everything open but theatres remain shut?” The actor shared the caption attached with a sad emoji.
Meanwhile, the government of Maharashtra is currently doing its best, ensuring the safety of all. They are taking baby steps, considering the risk of spread of COVID-19 in busy and crowded areas.
