Tollywood Thanks Telangana Government: But No Big Releases:- The government of Telangana announced that it would support Telugu film industry during this tough times. The government also announced that the power bills for the past six months would be waived off. With other extra benefits, the government of Telangana also granted permission to reopen the theatres across the state with immediate effect. All the Tollywood stars thanked Telangana government and Chief Minister KCR for standing as a support during this tough times. The industry hopes to bounce back with a bang at the earliest.
But several producers and analysts are against the 50 percent occupancy rule for theatres. Most of the producers aimed their films for Sankranthi 2021 release and they are not ready to release them if the 50 percent occupancy rule is applicable. The exhibitors, producers and distributors would lose big amount if this continues. There are also talks that the Sankranthi release chart would be pushed to summer if the Centre and the states would not grant 100 percent occupancy for film theatres soon.
