Hyderabad: Movie buffs will have to wait for some more time to feast on the big screen extravaganza.
The Telugu film industry is awaiting a new set of guidelines for screening of movies in the wake of government on Saturday deciding to lift the lockdown from Sunday morning. Although the lockdown has been lifted giving relief to business establishments in the State, theatres and multiplexes however have to wait for new movie releases.
Venkatesh Daggubati’s ‘Narappa’, Sekhar Kammula’s ‘Love Story’, ‘Ichata Vaahanamulu Nilupa Raadhu’, Vishwaksen’s ‘Paagal’, Prabhas pan-India flick ‘Radhe Shyam’, Gopichand’s ‘Seetimaarr’, Balakrishna’s ‘Akhanda’ ‘KGF Chapter 2’ ‘Drushyam 2’ are the movies that are ready to hit big screens. Movies like ‘Acharya’, ‘RRR’ Khiladi’ and ‘Major’ are in the last leg of shooting.
“Films Shootings can’t resume shootings immediately as it would take time, maybe a week or two. But distributors might wait to open a movie in theatres till restrictions in the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh are also eased. If we release small-budget movies, there is no guarantee that audiences would come to theatres. So it still hangs in balance.,” says producer C Kalyan who is also the chairman for Film Producer Council.
Meanwhile, VL Sridhar of Asian Cinemas too echoed the same saying, “We are not in a hurry. Clear guidelines from the State government would decide the scenario of the movie industry on whole in the coming days.”
