The Telugu film industry has lost over Rs. 30 crore since November 29 following the political developments across all the three regions, which have begun hampering the production and exhibition sectors. According to the Producers Council Secretary T. Prasanna Kumar, the film ‘Arya-2’ starring Allu Arjun alone lost about Rs. 3 crore because theatres across the Andhra, Rayalaseema and Telangana regions were not allowed to screen the film.
The suspense-thriller ‘Amaravathi’ lost Rs. 70 lakh across the State. In the State capital alone, the 10 shows that did not take place led to a loss of Rs. 30 lakh. The Priyamani and Jagapati Babu-starrer ‘Pravarakhyudu’ lost Rs. 50 lakh. Meanwhile, Chief Minister K. Rosaiah directed the Director General of Police to take necessary measures to prevent attacks on film production units.
