Comicbook.com reported witness Monthira Phengrat as saying, "There were some people at the entrance talking with staff. They were in the cinema where the man died, and they were very upset. They were shocked by what had happened. Some people had been sitting near the dead man. The cinema staff were very concerned, and they tried to prevent anybody from seeing what was happening. We were prohibited from taking pictures."

The website further reported that back in 2016, during a screening of The Conjuring 2, a 65-year-old man in Andrah Pradesh, India suffered a heart attack and died. It was later found that he had also had a massive stroke and was pronounced dead on the scene.
