Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar launch preview theatre named Lightbox
Joining the ranks of many of our biggest production houses who have their own preview theatres, Farhan Akhtar along with Ritesh Sidhwani have now opened a private preview theatre called Lightbox in Santacruz.
Located at a prime spot in Santacruz, the theatre is believed to be luxurious, with fancy seats and state-of-the-art technology. It is said that the duo wanted to time the launch of their preview theatre with the release of their film, Talaash that released last Friday.
Unfortunately, since the work is not complete yet, screenings will begin only next week,” said a source.
Talaash is Excel Entertainment’s next big release after the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Don 2 (2011). “They were keen to have their plush theatre open by Wednesday. However, they are very excited to own a private theatre,” added the insider.
Till date, the suburbs have a dearth of preview theatres, with a few exceptions like Ketnav or multiplexes. Once this preview theatre gets operational, Ritesh and Farhan hope to get many requests to lend their property to others as well.
