This Friendship day, 7th August 2011, Ashoka Cinema and Picture Palace Cinema organised a free special show of the movie Singham (starring Ajay Devgn and Prakash Raj, directed by Rohit Shetty) for the entire Police Force of Udaipur. The show started at about 10:15 a.m. and the management got a whopping response from the entire department, with around 700 officers and other members of the Police coming to see the movie at Picture Palace.
Singham – The film is set in a small village in Maharashta, where corruption is rife and crooked politicians call the shots. Ajay Devgn’s character Bajirao Singham is an honest police officer who has the single minded mission to eradicate all the corruption by any means possible. He is inspiring and defines the role of a Police officer. He exemplifies honesty and the will to drive a positive change. These are the traits we all wish to see in our Police.
It is a belief that today Cinema is the most influential form of entertainment. Films are creating an unprecedented impact on our generation and socially-responsible-movies like Singham are taking lead. On the Friendships Day, and a few days before Independence Day, the initiative to bring the entire Police force together under one roof, reminding them that they are the friends of the society and it is their utmost responsibility to maintain our freedom, is absolutely a great thinking and implementation by the management.
“Ashoka Cinema & Picture Palace Cinema have been providing quality entertainment to the City of Udaipur since 1945 and shall continue to do so for times to come. We always hope that inspiring movies, motivational movies, and movies with a message continue to release at our cinemas and entertain the people. We express are happiness and pride that Udaipur’s Police have been always around in times of trouble and have kept this city safe and peaceful. We express our gratitude towards them on this Friendship Day for being with us always. We also thank the department for allowing us to have this screening as our humble contribution towards betterment of our society.” said Mr. Mukund Sanghi, on behalf of Ashoka Cinema & Picture Palace Cinema.
