Multiplex business :
Assuming that the cinema halls will open in 2-3 months which are shut due to covid19 lockdown. Any further delay may affect the multiplex business
There is almost no risk as movie production is already low for the last 3-4 years.
But any further covid19 lockdown due to wave3 may delay the production of the new movie.
The resolution of the WWI land issue has been delayed for the last 2-3 years due to Elections, drought & Covid19. Any delay in the opening of the Mumbai high court will delay the WWI land resolution which is the biggest trigger for the stock price.
