Bunny, who recently lost his Innova to pay for the internet handling charges at, told Faking News, “I sat next to those two through the show but didn’t hear anything about plotting the robbery. They told me that they booked the tickets at the counter, and I kept crying most of the time that how dumb I must be to think that I won’t get tickets at show time. Now I’m taking BMTC buses and that too Non AC ones, because my wife is forcing me to save for the next car.” He continued crying.

Akhil, the guy who sat behind robbers, talked to the officers and recorded his statement.

“I actually won my ticket for this show after I ordered 1 mini veg biryani worth Rs 3500 from I went to the movie with a lot of excitement which only lasted for 20 mins. Later I started enjoying the adorable crying of the 3 month old from my back seat. I couldn’t even hear the words from movie. How am I supposed to listen to those robbers?” Akhil explained how he had no idea.

Later the police started questioning the cleaning department. They stated that they retrieved all the empty popcorn tubs, Pepsi glasses, and nachos plates, but they couldn’t find the stolen ones. Thus the police concluded that the suspects committed a clean crime without leaving any traces.

This news has irked the multiplex associations around the world. They extended their moral support to the victim multiplex. State government too has passed special orders to police department to find the culprits.

Meanwhile all the IT companies in Bangalore are also trying to find the culprits, so that they can hire them to teach the popcorn stealing techniques to their lowly paid employees.
