‘Ventilator‘ is the only Marathi film, which was not affected by demonetization of higher denomination currency notes. In fact, the film made earnings of 11 Crore in 11 days, which is to be highly appreciated. But, the makers should thank the audience, who used online booking, net banking and plastic money to book their tickets for this film. This clearly indicated that Marathi film lovers had the will to watch this film during this period of crisis and the alternate methods showed them the way.
The good response received from the audience has certainly increased the confidence of the makers of ‘Ventilator‘ film and the happiest person is producer Dr.Madhu Chopra. Reacting to this good news director Rajesh Mapuskar said that he was overwhelmed by the audience response. Mr. Nikhil Sane of Zee Studios also welcomed the alternative methods used by audience to book their tickets in the current scenario.
‘Ventilator‘ which was released on 4th November 2016, is presently being shown through 4165 shows daily through 257 cinema houses. Till date the director of the film and the artistes have personally paid visit to cinema houses in Thane, Nashik, Dombivali, Pune and Alibaug and interacted with enthusiastic audience.
