The producers of Tollywood seem to facing identity crisis on top of financial crisis. It has come to our attention that leading filmmakers have alleged that some ‘inefficient’ producers have ruined Tollywood, redefining the job of a producer from a film maker to a mere production manager, albeit with all the money and no clue about the scripts.
