Finally, the filmmakers are heaving a sigh of relief that they can release their movies in theatres.
The big festivals are around the corner and it is a perfect time for filmmakers to encash on the craze. The Telugu big festival Dasara is around the corner. Few Telugu makers are planning to release their film. So far, none of the filmmakers or actors haven’t announced the release date of the films. But, reports are doing, they are a slew of films that are lined up to release this month.
According to the sources, the first Telugu film to hit the theatres seems to be Ram Pothineni starrer ‘Red’.
