Telangana Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav has, on Thursday, met Chiranjeevi and Akkineni Nagarjuna at Megastar’s residence to discuss how and when to resume all the operations of cinema industry that are halted from last 2+ months.
After a brief meeting, Talasani spoke to media saying “Telangana government is positive about the requests made by the industry. We are evaluating all possible options to permit film shoots again. I will discuss other major aspects with CM KCR along few industry bigwigs.” The state government may announce some important measures and crew limitations that have to be followed while shooting on the location.
Producers Council President C Kalyan said that the cinematography ministry has permitted to resume post-production activities from tomorrow, i.e 22 May. Other key members who attending the meeting are producers Suresh Babu, Allu Aravind, C Kalyan, Dil Raju, Gemini Kiran, Shyam Prasad Reddy, directors Rajamouli, Trivikram, Koratala Siva, N Shankar and VV Vinayak.
However, Cinema halls may continue to shutdown after lockdown 4.0 as well. It is unlikely that theatres will be allowed to resume operations in next few weeks as the outbreak of COVID-19 virus is still not under control.
