The coronavirus cases in India are rising each passing day with the country recording 47,262 fresh cases in a day, the highest single-day rise so far this year. Apparently, Telangana is one of the states, which is witnessing a rise in active cases.
With the rise of active caseload, there were reports that film theatres in the state will be shut down again. We know the theatres reopened in parts in India under “Unlock 5.0”, after seven months of shutdown.
With the closure of nearly 10,000 theatres in mid-March last year, the film industry in the country has suffered a lot.
As the speculations about the closure of big screens are spreading faster, Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav on Wednesday responded in a video message saying that there will be no closure of cinema theatres in Telangana.
He denied rumours the rumours and said theatres will run as usual with Covid rules. The minister also said the film industry would go into huge losses if the big screens were closed again.
