Then, we saw pictures of Salman and his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma opening the gates of Gaiety-Galaxy on the same day. So, when did they go there? And what did they do?
We contacted Gaiety Galaxy and Maratha Mandir’s Executive Director Manoj Desai, who said, “Salman and I spoke when he was going to the Jio World Drive. It is good that later he came to Gaiety-Galaxy. Aayush and he opened the gates. The interesting bit was that he was very hungry. He ate three samosas from our canteen. It was very nice to see him do that”.
“I am eagerly waiting for his film ‘Antim’. It should do well,” Desai concluded.
Besides Salman and Aayush, Salman Khan‘s ‘Antim’ stars Mahima Makwana. Varun Dhawan makes a special appearance in the song ‘Vighnaharta’. The film has been directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
For those who’ve come in late, exhibitor for Gaiety-Galaxy, Vinay Choksey had told us the reason for the venue shift as: “The reason is that we wouldn’t have been able to pull it off as our air-conditioning system is not functioning properly. With the huge gap of 18 months of no activity in the COVID phase in theatre premises, the system needed a maintenance service”.
