It is a Known fact that most of the film industry is suffering as all the work got stalled because of the lock down. It is been 2 and a half months since the lockdown got implemented and thousands of workers in film industry are starving as they have no other financial support. Tollywood’s prominent people along with Cinematography minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav had a meeting with CM KCR to discuss the problem the industry is facing. Actor Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, senior Producer Allu Aravind, director Rajamouli, Dil Raju, Trivikram, N. Shankar, Radhakrishna, C. Kalyan, Suresh Babu, Koratala Shiva were the few amongst the people attended the meeting.
Presently many Telugu movies are stuck in shooting process and few are waiting for the Post production to start. As all these were discussed with the CM, he has permitted the Tollywood to work and said that the lockdown rule can not be violated. The permission is granted for the indoor pre production work but with a limited crew. Tollywood is allowed to begin their indoor shoots from June and can work on pre production, production and post production level wise with minimal workers to avoid the spread of Corona virus.
The issue of theatrical releases of the movies is also taken to the notice of KCR and he said a proper decision would be taken according to the COVID situation at the time of movie release. The permission is granted only till the post production work for now. T-town is so relieved by CM KCR’s decision towards Tollywood considering the troubles the crew members are facing.
Megastar Chiranjeevi thanks CM KCR on Twitter for taking immediate and appropriate steps to save the people depending on Telugu Film Industry.
