Last month, after watching the trailer of the actress’s comeback movie, the fan headed to make to get his tickets even before the advance booking starts early October. And not just a seat for himself, Naidu has booked the entire screen in Maxus theatre for the 7.30 pm show.
There have been tales of fans standing in long queues for hours at a stretch to get tickets for films featuring their favourite stars. But booking an entire screen in advance isn’t something one has heard in quite a while. The theatre, located in Andheri East, has a seating capacity of 290 and Naidu has even paid `5000 as advance payment, which almost entitles him to have a private screening of the movie English Vinglish.
This screening is open for Naidu’s friends and family. His favourite star Sridevi is making a comeback after almost 15 years and Naidu considers it a big occasion to celebrate with near and dear ones. He has even put out an open invitation on his social networking and microblogging profiles for any Sridevi fan to join him at the screening. Till now, a lot of friends and family have confirmed to be present on the ‘D’ day, which means at least 107 seats will definitely be occupied.
All said and done, it is time to wait and watch whether Sridevi herself will grace the occasion.
