It is written in this post, ‘They came, they robbed us and then forgot us. We strongly oppose the performance of Sooryavanshi in the cinema halls of Punjab. We will not let them loot themselves any more.
The idea of discontinuing the show of ‘Sooryavanshi’ in the cinema halls of Patiala area is also being considered. It is believed that the farmers will soon demonstrate and appeal to the people not to watch the film in cinemas. Theater owners also fear that their property may be damaged if they continue with the show. There is also news that the local police have also appealed to the theater owners to stop the screening of the film for the time being.
