When the cinema halls and theatres are going to be made within Uttar Pradesh, punish them so severely that they cannot eat that much. Eat, but do not let your stomach burst. Eat and feed, but how can you eat so much. Build a film city, make a picture, but if it continues like this, who will go to see the film. Let the poor man become a pauper."
