The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) denied imposing curbs on theaters in Hyderabad, Telangana.
On the 3rd of December, Friday, Mr. T. Srinivas Yadav, the Minister of Cinematography in Telangana said, “There are no plans to shut down cinema theatres or impose curbs on occupancy in view of Omicron, the new variant of COVID-19.” He asked the people of Telangana not to believe rumours and go to cinema theaters, following COVID-19 protocols.
The clarification of Mr. Srinivas Yadav came after a meeting with Tollywood filmmakers. Filmmakers were worried about the new variant and rumours that the TRS would impose curbs on occupancy in cinema halls.
In Tollywood, some big budget movies starring leading stars like Ram Charan, Jr. NTR and others are scheduled for releases in upcoming months.
The TRS Minister also confirmed that the State Health Department is prepared to tackle the Wuhan virus situation in the State, despite the fear of COVID-19.
Speaking in favour of the cinema industry, Mr. Srinivas Yadav said the film industry suffered badly for nearly two years due to the pandemic and just when it started to recover, fears of Omicron have emerged. However, they will not shut theaters, but impose strict rules for people visiting cinema halls in the City. In addition, the TRS Government is also mulling to impose restrictions for non vaccinated people in public places.
