In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, all theatres, entertainment centres, and recreational facilities were shut down all around the world, for a period of three months. While India is still reeling under its impact, most western countries have recuperated from the situation and are slowly opening up essential businesses and entertainment centres with limited occupancies in compliance with hygiene norms.
While last week, actor Vijay‘s Bigil saw a re-release in France and Germany as a part of the actor’s birthday celebrations, this week actor Ajith‘s Viswasam is re-releasing in France and Malaysia, beginning today. It will be screened for a week in Gaumont Saint-Denis, France with a single show per day and at TSR Cinemax with two shows per day.
