The State government has issued orders extending relief measures to the film industry and its stakeholders so that the industry resumes operations.

The government has announced waiver of fixed electricity charges for April, May and June, 2020 and deferred payment of fixed electricity charges for six months—from July 2020 to December 2020— for all theatres, including multiplexes.

Also, the government will provide 50% interest subvention subject to a maximum limit of 4.5% per annum for loans availed by cinema theatres (excluding multiplexes) from banks.

Nagarjuna’s film ‘Wild Dog’ hit the screen a few days ago while Chiranjeevi-starrer Acharya is due to release soon.
