Filmmaker Hansal Mehta had tweeted that he wanted to watch director Vasan Bala's film Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota in theatres, but no show was available in multiplexes.
"Missed preview of the Vasan Bala madness called Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. Thought I'd buy tickets and celebrate his first theatrical release at cinema halls. Looks like the multiplex bullies have prevailed for now—the film doesn't show up on Bookmyshow. True Ronnie Screwvala?" Mehta tweeted.

Replying, Kapur tweeted on Thursday, "Saw Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota at Macao Film Festival. Audience could not stop cheering. Cost of multiplexes driving people to online platforms. All new/best directors in India are finding that a better option. Theatres are ultimately killing themselves."

After having a successful run at film festivals around the world, it released in theatres on March 21.
