The Lucknow district administration has asked all multiplexes in the city to run a free show of the Bollywood film “Rustom” on August 15, an official said on Thursday.

This is being done to inculcate a sense of patriotism in the masses, District Magistrate Raj Shekhar told IANS.

A total of 1,704 seats have been reserved in the eight multiplexes in the capital of Uttar Pradesh.

The tickets are available on a first-come-first-served basis, the official said.

Ten per cent seats have been reserved for specially-abled “Divyangs” in various theatres and 33 per cent have been reserved for senior citizens and 33 per cent for students from schools and colleges.

The ticket windows for this special show of the Akshay Kumar-starrer film will open from Friday, the official added.
