Hundred percent tenancy in film theatres can not be enabled yet, the Union house ministry told Tamil Nadu today. The AIADMK federal government of the state, which lifted the limitations on motion picture theatres last week, was informed to scrap its order making that allowance.
The Union house ministry has so far allowed 50 per cent tenancy in film theatres outside containment zones as part of the phased unlock procedure.

” State/UT federal governments shall not water down these guidelines … in any way and will strictly impose the very same,” the letter read, indicating the ministry guidelines.
The letter also mentioned a Supreme Court order that asked states to impose Covid-appropriate behaviour, including wearing of masks and keeping social distancing.
” In view of the above, the GoTN (Federal Government of Tamil Nadu) is requested to immediately provide required order to bring their guidelines in line with the MHA standards dated 28 th December 2020 and inform compliance to this ministry,” the letter read.
Tamil Nadu, which had actually opened cinema halls with 50 per cent tenancy in November, will have its assembly elections later this year.
The authorization for 100 per cent tenancy was released two days ago after requests from lots of movie stars to increase capability prior to Pongal.
