Now, netizens are coming up with their own versions of boycotting films in cinema halls. So, a LinkedIn post urging people to "stop watching movies in theatres" recently caught our attention on Twitter. 

A Twitter user, @ugach_kahitarii, shared the screenshot of the post on the micro-blogging platform. "No wonder LinkedIn's content has downgraded big time. The users are coming up with a lot of abysmal takes," the tweet reads.

Here's what the LinkedIn user named Siddharth DEY shared in the post:

Do you know that an average Indian spends nearly 1800 rupees when they go for a movie at a multiplex? This includes a movie ticket, food, etc. But do you know there are around 35 millions kids who do not make it to schools due to poverty. The money you spend at theatre can educate at least 5 students. You one movie ticket can educate the future of India. Stop watching movies in theatres and work towards a better India.

P.S. I am not asking you to boycott Bollywood. Watch the movies but on OTT.

You fail to understand economics at its basics. Someone’s expense is another’s income. 1800 spent at theater is income for theatre and employment for that ecosystem with which they finance educational of their children and food on the table. They inturn buy the movie from distributors who in turn buy from Producers. OTT or Cinema, it’s the same. OTT competes with the distributors to buy from Producers. So your post is completely baseless. What people want to do with their money leave it to them. As long as it’s rotating in the economy it’s doing good.

Koi sense hai iski baaton mein? I mean, just like one Twitter user said, even I don't believe that an average Indian spends ₹1800 to watch a film in cinema hall. Most of us don't even buy food at the multiplex. Anyway, boycotting movies in theatres is certainly not the solution to educate children 'coz many livelihoods are dependent on movies' verdict at the box office.

And going by the post, in an effort to raise a concern for a good cause, sadly, it just missed a mark. And we can surely conclude that LinkedIn has truly become the new Facebook.
