Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao stated today that the government will allow film shootings, reopening of theatres, and other production-related works in a phased manner.

"A lot of people solely depend on the film industry to eke out their living. It's necessary to resume film shootings, reopen theatres and other production works in a limited way by adhering to lockdown guidelines and other Covid-19 norms. While the post-production activities, which happen indoors, can be resumed with immediate effect, the resumption of film shootings will be allowed in June. The reopening of theatres is still a way off and we will make a decision accordingly soon after assessing the situation," Rao said at Pragathi Bhavan while referring to the demands of the delegation of representatives of the Telugu cinema to allow the resumption of shootings, post-production works and reopening of theatres.

The chief minister has asked the industry representatives to discuss with Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and the officials concerned on how to conduct film shootings in the State by strictly following social distancing norms. Shooting for films as well as other production activities have remained suspended since March 19 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Also present at the meeting were ministers Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Niranjan Reddy,  Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and industry representatives including Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Rajamouli, Allu Aravind, Daggubati Suresh Babu, Trivikram Srinivas, Dil Raju, and Koratala Siva, among others.
