Telugu film industry is subjected to humongous harassment in Jagan Mohan Reddy’s regime. The ticket rates issue that is going on in Andhra Pradesh is almost threatening the existence of the theaters in the state. While this is the case with AP, completely contrasting situations do exist in the neighboring states.
We have seen how KCR Government in Telangana brought flexi system in ticket prices and allow the prices with an upper ceiling of 295 Rupees. Neighboring Tamil Nadu Government has gone an extra mile to help Ajith’s Valimai that is scheduled for January 13th release.
The Government has gone to the extent of imposing Sunday Lockdowns but is not closing down the theaters. It is rumored that the Government is trying its level best to allow Valimai release. While it is not good to do such a thing at the cost of public health, the intent to help the industry should be appreciated.
In Andhra Pradesh, we are seeing the Government not following the court orders and resorting to seizing of theaters that went to the court. Probably, Jagan should take a cue from neighboring CMs in helping the industry.
