A total number of 175 theatres are shut in Andhra Pradesh last week in total. The exhibitors are not much interested to stand in business after the government of AP slashed down the prices of tickets. The screening of Shyam Singha Roy, Pushpa and Akhanda are interrupted badly. Some of the theatres are raided by the Revenue officials and they are seized. The exhibitors of AP are keen to meet together and take a call if the government continues to be harsh against them.
Some of the exhibitors are depressed badly with the recent raids. The rest of them continued to screen films after they received pressure from the distributors. For now, the situations are worse in Andhra Pradesh and the exhibitors of AP wants the celebrities of Telugu cinema to come on to a common platform and mount pressure on the government of AP. There are talks that Megastar Chiranjeevi initiated talks with the government of AP to resolve the issue. Further updates awaited.
