It is not good for producers, distributors and exhibitors and the public, or else.”
Continued Rakesh, “People do not have much money to spend in a week, to see the two films. But after giving me the assurances, they have done this under any pressure, and I do not know. If they could come under pressure, then our industry will never move forward . We will go back to back. “
