There is good news for all the cinephiles. If you haven't guessed already! The movie theatres and multiplexes are all set to reopen on July 1 in Telangana, as per the latest buzz doing the rounds. However, as per COVID-19 protocol, movie halls will only be allowed to function at 50 percent of their actual seating capacity and should comply with a few guidelines. However, the Telangana government is yet to confirm it officially.
Earlier, the government had shut down theatres due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state. The theatres were closed on April 20, after several big-ticket films had already postponed their release dates. Director Sekhar Kammula’s Love Story, Nani’s Tuck Jagadish, Rana Daggubati, and Sai Pallavi-starrer Virata Parvam are waiting for the reopening of theatres. Small budget movies like Ishq and Ek Mini Katha have been released on OTT platforms alredy. After a long hiatus, it appears that cinephiles will once again get to enjoy the theatrical release of their favourite hero's films.
