Authorities are being approached to ensure opening of these earmarked cinema halls for screening such love based films in Kashmir as all cinema halls in Kashmir can't do any other commercial activity except film screening which they have avoided during last 30 years. They should understand professionalism of cinema to perform only that activity under law for which they are established. They should learn how all cinema halls in rest of the country are screening Kashmir based Award films and all closed or diverted Cinema halls of Kashmir should return back to their original activity for which they have been created so that cinema platforms are available in Srinagar as well for such internationally awarded and acclaimed films.
