Kangana invites people to theatres

Saturday evening, Kangana shared a video message for her fans, inviting them to the theatres to watch Tejas. She captioned the video on X (formely Twitter), “Even before covid theatrical footfalls were dipping drastically post covid it has become seriously rapid. Many theatres are shutting down and even after free tickets and many reasonable offers drastic footfall decline is continuing. Requesting people to watch films in theatres and enjoy with family and friends or else they (theatres) won’t be able to survive. Thanks.”

She talked about community viewing in the video and said that the audience doesn't give a chance to 99 percent of the films. She added that those who have liked films like Uri: The Surgical Strike and Mary Kom will love Tejas as well and invited them to come to theatres, especially the multiplex audience.

An IMDB user called Tejas "poor man's Top Gun" while another user called it the "worst movie ever seen in life". Many also urged people to not watch the film and put it on the "must not watch" list.
