Mumbai: In a show of support for theatrical releases, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan visited a suburban theatre to watch Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh-starrer "Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari".

In a video message ahead of the screening on Tuesday, Khan said he was excited to witness the "big screen experience".

"During the lockdown, we were all watching movies on our laptops, so I'm really looking forward to the big screen experience," the actor, who was accompanied by his daughter Ira, said.

"I have been hearing good things about this film, 'Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari'. People have been praising Diljit and Manoj's performances. So all the very best to the entire team and to all the theatres that have opened up. Stay safe," he added.

Set in the '90s, "Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari" is billed as an unlikely comedy about a wedding detective on a hunt which turns into a chase game.

But states like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Chhattisgarh remained closed.

On November 5, the Maharashtra government finally allowed cinema halls, multiplexes and drama theatres outside containment zones to restart operation with 50 per cent seating capacity and a host of dos and don'ts, including ensuring physical distancing, sanitisation and no eatables allowed.
