Multiplexes not bending to Yash Chopra!

There is still no sign of fanaa, being screened in multiplexes. Yash Chopra is trying to flex his muscles, and the Multiplex mini-moguls wouldn't yield. Such are the powers of scales. Imagine if our multiplex chains were as large as those of UK with 5000 screens and above. But it is only a matter of time, somebody has to yield. Multiplex owners say that they are not losing any money, only not gettin what they could have earned. But they do know about opportunity cost, and it would be foolish to not to earn a few CRORES. Maybe they will come to some settlement. Perhaps I will take the oportunity to visit Roxy or Maratha Mandir. Yash Chopra won't lose, if the film were a hit..

Update: I yield I yield!!! The multiplex owner had to bend to yash Chopra's Bully after all. Inox and Zee Fun Republic haven't joined the other multiplexes as of today morning. PVR broke in first, the paper reports

Hi BA: I am glad it's come already.. even I ma planning to watch it today.. before it is banned or

@ HUL: Right on.. They are doing just that

@ Nirav hehehe: The multiplex blinked first for now.. our multiplexes still lacks the clout that their English counterparst have.. 5000 screens some have...

By the way it was PVR which already have a huge chain outsde India who blinked first.... But they must have marked Hamara Bhi Din aayega types

@ DJ: Yeah,,, Mumbai mirror also carried articles from some blogs who wrote about the controversy.. I suggest you shift from Rediffblogs...... :-)
