Actor John Abraham said on Wednesday that he viewed the closure of cinemas during the pandemic as a “restart” as he knew that once the theaters open, the audience will be able to gather confidence to go there gradually.

Theaters in the country remained closed for most of 2020 and were later opened in a phased manner in different parts of the country.

In Maharashtra, the important hub of English films, theaters were allowed to open last month, after which the release of several films was announced. However, there are concerns about the spread of the infection in closed spaces such as cinema halls and critics say it has made them nervous about going to the movies.

When Abraham was asked if he ever feared that the audience would not come to watch the movies, he said that the pandemic should be seen as an opportunity to restart things.

“I wasn’t scared, I was thinking of the situation,” he said. I knew it would take time. The process is still going on. If you ask me whether we are close to the 100% target, my answer will be ‘no’. People are still thinking and are coming.

Abraham told reporters, “There was practical scrutiny in mind as to how you would like to produce a film, when the film would be shot… all these were being re-thought, there was no fear. You have to face the situation you are in.

The actor was speaking at a special event of PVR where the multiplex chain introduced an anti-viral cinema air purification system. PVR in association with UFO Movies announced the launch of cinema specific air disinfectant device ‘UFO-Wolf Air Mask’. According to PVR, this will provide protection from all kinds of harmful bacteria and viruses in the air and surface.

Abraham’s film ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ is releasing on Thursday.
