Hyderabad: As few as 15 theatres in Telangana are expected to reopen this Friday. Horror crime thriller and Illayaraja musical ‘Neragadu’ will be the first film to release in the theatres after months of closure due to the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic.
The movie exhibitors across both the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have announced reopening theatres on Sunday last. However, due to non-availability of new films, all theatres in the State remain closed.
The new Telugu release ‘Neragadu’ directed by S Bhani and produced by GSN Murthy is releasing in theatres like Devi, Anjali, Sensation Insomnia, SV Cine Square in the city and a few other theatres in Khammam, Mahabubabad, Banswada, Miryalguda, Suryapet, Kothagudem. Some single screen theatre owners have decided to wait for one more week to start the business afresh, make accounts right, rather than starting business in the middle of the month, said an exhibitor from the city.
Most of the exhibitors in the city are waiting for the big releases – Satyadev starrer ‘Thimmarusu’, Teja Sajja and Priya Prakash Varrier starrer ‘Ishq’, and ‘Narasimhapuram’ that are scheduled to come on July 30.
Meanwhile, the exhibitors in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh haven’t made up their mind on reopening the theatres.
