Hyderabad: The film industry is one of the sectors that has suffered the most due to the lockdown in the wake of Corona. As part of the unlock, the central government has given permission to shopping malls, air services, railways, buses, metros, hotels, and gyms. Theaters have not yet been allowed to open. It is against this backdrop that requests are coming in from all the film industries in the country to see the theaters open soon. The hashtag ‘Unlock Cinemas .. Save Jobs’ is getting support from many movie celebrities. The six-month lockdown has cost the Indian film industry about Rs 9,000 crore a month at a rate of about Rs 1,500 crore. ‘The closure of 10000 screens across the country has directly lost two lakh people and indirectly many lakhs of jobs.
Currently, the situation in the film industry is very miserable. It would be great if all sorts of precautions were taken to open theaters. It has already opened theaters in China, Korea, UK, Italy, UAE, USA, Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and other countries with caution. There they are getting a good response from the audience. The impact of the corona was so severe that many lives that depended on the film industry fell by the wayside as theaters did not open. That is why we want the government to give permission to open theaters soon, ”he wrote in the hashtag. Leading protagonist Maheshbabu’s Wife Namrata responded to this. “We urge the central government to reopen the theaters soon. Their jobs, which depend on the film, are a matter of employment, ”said Namrata in response to a post by AMB Cinemas.
