The Telugu film industry which showed immense speed post lockdown with quick shootings and a lot of releases is now forced to slow down due to the second wave. While the government forced other industries to get closed, the film industry independently came forward and stopped the shootings as well as releases. As per reports, over 15 films were postponed and the filming of 25 movies came to a halt.
Some of hem are big films like 'Pushpa', 'Acharya', 'Akhanda', 'Khiladi', 'F3', Radhe Shyam' and many others affected by the virus. Celebrities like Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde, Pawan Kalyan, Anil Ravipudi and others tested positive for Corona which is worrying everyone. A lot of new films which were about to begin were stalled and some filmmakers decided to take a gap in order to maintain the safety of the crew. News is that this situation may continue till the end of May and even in June if the spread of Corona doesn't come under control. Hope everything returns back to normal soon.
