The cinema theaters in both the Telugu States remained shut even though the Central Government had allowed operating at 50% Occupancy from October 15th. In Andhra Pradesh, the State Government allowed to open but the theater owners are not ready.
In Telangana, it is the complete opposite. The theater owners announced ready to open the theaters but the State Government is yet to release a G.O. allowing it. Meanwhile, the Telugu film industry is gearing up for its first screening later today.
Colour Photo which will release today on AHA is going to have two screenings for the media later today in a Preview theater in Hyderabad. “Two shows were arranged so as to ensure social distancing in the theater. The show will go on with less than the prescribed occupancy. Complete sanitization measures are taken and masks are mandatory,” a source told us.
It has to be seen how the media will respond to these screenings. Colour Photo starring Suhaas and Chandini Chowdary is all about color discrimination in our society. The story is set in the backdrop of the 1990s.
