The fast spreading Coronavirus has completely destroyed the economics of Tollywood. The theatres were shut down from the past four months and the shootings came to halt while no one knows when they resume again.

Though the government hasn't said anything, it is sure that the theatres are not going to open anytime soon considering the rapid spread of the virus. The government may not risk people's lives by reopening schools and theatres. The trade circles are hoping that they get reopened by Dusshera. The filmmakers are lining up films accordingly and if that does not workout, all the films may be pushed directly to Sankranti as it is a good season for releases.

This year was off to a great start with stars like Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun setting the box-office on fire. Many hoped that this year will be wonderful as a lot of big films were supposed to hit the screens. But 2020 turned into a complete nightmare and it may take at least two years for the film industry to get back on track and recover all the losses.
