K. Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, approved the re opening of theatres and also allowed film shootings.
The State Government had given the nod to reopen movie halls with a set of precautionary measures to keep the coronavirus at bay, after which theatre owners have been busy making necessary arrangements to reopen cinema halls.
