While fans throng to theatres to book tickets for Shah Rukh Khan`s latest offering, Pathaan, there still remains a large population that doesn`t have access to the big screen space. Enters mobile digital movie theatre company, Picturetime, which has set up Pathaan screenings for several remote regions in the country. The Deepika Padukone, John Abraham starrer actioner is being showcased in small towns of Telangana, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Leh and Arunachal Pradesh.
“Taking a larger than life film like Pathaan which is awaited with bated breath all over the world, to our snow-clad theatre in Ladakh, which is the world`s highest altitude cinema theatre in Leh, fills us with immense joy and pride. We are also screening Pathaan in Asifabad, a remote region at Telangana Maharashtra Border, at Sardarshehar, in the interiors of Rajasthan and in our theatres at Arunachal. We can’t wait to witness cinema love at its best and people in the interiors getting to witness the first-day first show where a good cinema-watching experience is still a far-fetched dream,” says Sushil Chaudhary, Founder & CEO, Picturetime.
Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, is being released over 5000 screens in India. The film is meant to be a part of the YRF`s Spy Universe, which includes Hrithik Roshan`s WAR and Salman Khan-led Tiger series.
