Hyderabad: The KTR sub-committee including Srinivas Yadav, Tummala Nageshwar Rao and 11members from the Tollywood besides numerous officials have given a relief to small budget films by making it mandatory for 450-odd theatres to screen five shows daily and accommodate 4 p.m. show for small budget movies.
Along with sanctioning 200-odd mini theatres in places where regular theatres are not available and also considering to introduce awards to honour talent, the Tollywood film fraternity would also remain thankful to the TRS government for considering to introduce fast tracking 'single-window' permission to shoot at government parks, roads and highways for film and TV shootings.
"Thanks to the TRS govt. for making it mandatory for theatres to screen five shows in 450-odd theatres as well as multiplex theatres since it would revive the confidence of small budget filmmakers. Hundreds of small budget films are waiting for theatres, so now it’s a breather for concept filmmakers," says Director Prem Raj.
"Earlier we had to rush from one department to another to get permission to shoot on roads and parks, but now permission will be given under one roof, saving the time and money of producers," says another producer. To simplify permissions, the government has urged concerned officials of police, tourism and forest to sit together and arrive at an amicable sanctioning policy to permit shootings in govt.
places. Even the much-hyped mini theatres have been permitted places where regular theatres are not functioning. "Ministers like KTR, Srinivas Yadav, Tummala and officials are doing their best to sort out issues of Telugu cinema. Online ticketing would reduce black marketing as it reduces human interface between ticket seller and buyer," says Vijayender Reddy, former President of the Telangana Film Chamber of Commerce.
