A London theater screening the re-release of NTR's Simhadri was engulfed in turmoil as fans resorted to an appalling act. Igniting a smoke bomb inside the theater, their overzealousness led to a chaotic scene of evacuations, slogans, and pandemonium in the corridors.
The reckless behavior of these fans, driven by excitement, resulted in smoke and minor fires within the premises. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries, and the London Fire Brigade confirmed that there was no actual fire, attributing the alarm to the activation of a smoke device.
The cinema management promptly evacuated the audience as a precautionary measure, and the incident was resolved by the firefighters within a short span of time.
The video footage of the incident, released by Hounslow Cineworld, swiftly gained viral attention. Regrettably, this incident follows a recent occurrence where fans caused property damage during the re-release of Jalsa and Desamuduru, leading to temporary bans on further re-releases.
The untoward actions of a few irresponsible fans cast a shadow over the possibility of reliving cherished yesteryear blockbusters. It serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible fandom, as such incidents jeopardize the opportunity for genuine celebrations and appreciation of beloved films.
