Dear Chaitanya,

I have been following the story you are doing with ref to "Outside food in Cinemas". Excellent work.

Last evening I went with my wife and her sister to Inox Laserplex CR2, Nariman Point for the 5.15 pm Mama Mia ! Here we go again, show. I deliberately carried 2 packets of Bingo Potato Chips bought for Rs. 10 from outside.

I was stopped at the security at 5.10 pm and told that I could not carry the Chips inside, as I was not permitted to. I requested them to say it on my cell phone camera which they avoided. Still I tried to record whatever I could. A security officer called Mr. Shubham said I needed to speak to the manager. As the movie had already started I left the chips with the security and went in.

In the interval I rushed back to Mr. Shubham and told him I wanted to see the manager. Mr. Shubham made me meet Guest Relation Manager Ms. Mishkat. I was very calm and told her that you were violating my rights and according to Section 121 of the Mahrashtra Cinema Rules 1966 there was no prohibition on taking food in multiplexes. I also informed her that I would send her company a legal notice first thing on Monday morning.

The 2 bags of Bingo Chips were promptly returned to me which I took in the Movie Hall Screen 4 and ate the same. The Bingo Chips never tasted this good.

I took a picture of the packet of Chips in the Movie Hall.

Since you are following up on this story I wanted to share it with you.

Advocte Aditya Pratap is doing an excellent job of fighting on this issue in the Bombay High Court.

If you wish to speak to me please feel free to call me anytime.

Warm regards,

Parvez Damania
