Pvt firm gives staff holiday, books tickets for Kabali

A private firm has not only declared a special holiday on Friday for its staff to watch Rajinikanth starrer Kabali, but has also booked tickets for the employees and their families. Manoj Pushparaj, Head-Operations of Opus Waterpoofing, a private firm in Mangamammanapalya near Electronics City, told Deccan Herald that he had heard his employees talking about the movie release and about their plans to seek leave. “Before they could approach me for leave with lame excuses, I decided to declare a special holiday,’’ he said.

On Sunday, an internal notice was sent to all employees. “Initially, they thought it was a work-related notice, but they were in for a surprise after they went through it. Several of them approached me to confirm the holiday,’’ Pushparaj, said and added that the holiday was also meant to give a break from the rigorous work this monsoon.

The company has contacted PVR, Cinemax and Inox multiplexes for the show. “We still don’t know if we will get all the tickets for one single show or for different shows,” added Pushparaj.

Pushparaj feels it will motivate employees to build a healthy relationship with the management besides making them work with more dedication. “We usually organise lunches or one-day trips. This time, I thought providing tickets for the movie and declaring a holiday was more appropriate,” he said.

Kollappan, site-cum-project engineer, said all his collea­gues were excited at the company’s surprise gesture. “As soon as I heard about the special holiday, I called my friend in Coimbatore and asked him to book tickets for the movie. But when the company informed us that it would also provide the tickets, I cancelled my trip. For the first time, I will be watching the movie with all my colleagues and I am eagerly waiting for it.”
