Kamal Gianchandani who is CEO of the theatre chain PVR

He said, “It is heartening to know that Warner Bros.
Pictures has announced the release dates of Mortal Kombat on 30th July, The
Suicide Squad 2 on 5th August, and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” on
13th August.

Many states have permitted cinemas to re-open and the release of
these movies in three consecutive weeks in multi-languages and multi-formats
would surely give a boost to the industry by inducing moviegoers back to the
big screen to enjoy these amazing films.”
