A leading tabloid quotes Manoj Desai, owner of G7 multiplex in Mumbai, as saying, “While Pad Man releases on January 25, Padmaavat will release the night before. The distributors of Padmaavat are likely to reimburse the film that is scheduled for the 9.30 pm show that day and screen the magnum opus instead. There will be only one paid preview. This will happen not just in my theatres but across India.”

This is not the first time when a filmmaker has opted for a paid preview of his film. In the past also, makers of films like Don: The Chase Begins Again, Wake Up Sid, Ghajini, 3 Idiots and Raees, to name just a few, have organized paid previews of their films.
