"For the next phase, which will be done by June next year, we will cover another 40 cinemas with a total of 230 screens more accessible," Bijli said on Tuesday.
“As we go forward, we will keep evaluating the ones that are already existing to make them more accessible and the new ones that we are building, we are making sure that they are accessible from day one,” said Bijli.
On the business front, he said, "The third quarter so far looks good. October was good, November was slightly slow but better than last year and December looks promising on release of Robot 2.0."
"For FY19, we have a target of adding 90-100 screens," said Bijli, adding that they have already opened 40 screen this year.
"The food and beverage business is seeing growth of around 15-20 percent, average ticket price (ATP) has seen a growth of 4-5 percent and average occupancy is around 33-37 percent. So, overall FY19 seems to be a blockbuster year all over the world."
