Yesterday was a semi-final between India and New Zealand which is the high voltage match.
Many Bollywood celebrities are there to support India. But do you know that affects negatively the Indian cinema industry as fewer audiences come to the movie theatres because of the Indian New Zealand semi-final match?
Movies like Tiger 3 and Jigar Thanda are doing so well nowadays at the box office. But yesterday almost half the audience reached the theatres as we expected. Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 lost almost 7 crore Rupees as all the cricket fans canceled their plan to watch the movie.
Same for the Jigar Thanda this movie also lost a high amount of traffic. If you have seen many movies released but some movies didn’t even get a single person to watch the movie.
But it doesn’t mean that movies collapsed they lost traffic because it was a semi-final match. You will see the growth in traffic in theatres again.
