Were you eagerly waiting for Friday, September 16, to book the latest movie tickets for only Rs. 75? You will have to wait a week more for the same now as the decision has been taken to postpone the event. It can be known that, the Multiplex Association of India (MAI) had earlier this month announced that in order to celebrate National Cinema Day on September 16 many multiplexes will offer cinema tickets for just Rs. 75 to lure movie lovers to the theaters. The reason behind are the Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra box office collections.

However, the decision has now been postponed by a week to September 23. Wondering why? It is because of the buzz the Ayan Mukerji's directorial Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt has created. According to a source quoted by Bollywood Hungama, “The MAI has decided to postpone the National Cinema Day by a week. It'll now be held on Friday, September 23, instead of Friday, September 16.”

The decision to celebrate the National Cinema Day has been postponed by MAI to safeguard Brahmastra box office collections. “The Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra is the dominant film at present and is doing great. It was strong even on Monday, which proves that it'll do strong business on the second weekend too. Disney, who has released Brahmastra, hence requested the multiplex association to push the celebrations by a week,” the source said, explaining the reason behind the decision.

“The MAI and the multiplex teams found merit in their request. We all know that Brahmastra is a very costly movie. It needs to daily clock a huge number to become a hit and the Rs. 75 offer might prove to be a dampener. The multiplexes are also grateful to Brahmastra as this is the film that ended the dry period at the box office. Therefore, they all agreed to Disney's plea. The National Cinema Day will now be held on September 23, on Brahmastra's third Friday,” he added, as quoted by Bollywood Hungama.

It can be known that the National Cinema Day will be held at more than 4000 participating screens across the country. PVR, Inox, Cinepolis, Carnival, Miraj, City Pride, Asian, Mukta A2, Movie Time, Wave, M2K, Delite, and others will be participating in the event.
