Telugu film shootings will resume from Aug 22nd
The shooting of the Telugu films has stopped since 1 August and is expected to resume shooting on 22 August. The decision of stopping all the shootings was taken by the producers and the Telugu film chambers. Several producers held meetings in Hyderabad and decided to take strict action to set things right for the industry’s survival.
One Telugu producer said, the Theatrical revenues, except for blockbuster movies, and other movies have fallen to an utter low of 20%. This has hit the industry hard, which was already suffering from the COVID impact. Everyone is now worried about the sustainability of the industry and its workers.
So, now the producers have come together to restructure the entire industry, the producers have taken a major decision not to release any new movie on OTT platforms for 10 weeks after the theatrical release.
Now, the shooting of all movies will be decided to resume by 22nd August, and after discussing the various issues, they came up with some guidelines, which are to be followed by all concerned. They have confirmed that shootings can be resumed from the next week, and the shooting formalities of all medium and big-ticket films will resume from next week.
