A major portion of the ceiling in the balcony of the main hall of the Dr Kashinath Ghanekar auditorium collapsed on April 25. A private event organised by a local politician and attended by over 200 people had ended a few minutes before the collapse. No one was present in the balcony at the time of the incident.
The civic body initially promised to open the theatre in 20 days
The date of starting the work was then pushed to May 20 but the work has not begun as of now.
The corporation has now set a new deadline to start the work from the first week of June
