At a time when the industry is gradually recovering from financial slump, the new variant Omicron that we get to hear from the news has become a threat. The new release ‘Akhanda’, and many more big movies are lined up till Sankranthi festival like ‘Pushpa’, ‘RRR’, ‘Acharya’, ‘Bheemla Nayak’. But nothing to panic as the government is all prepared to face it,” the Minister said.
