The ongoing strike by Film Federation has brought all the film shootings to a standing still in Tollywood. But only two films have escaped the strike and are going on with their shooting. They are Baahubali and Saradaga Oka Sayantram. Baahubali is a bilingual film and has the provision to shoot some portions of the film with other state film workers.
The makers of Baahubali are using this provision and are getting film workers from neighbouring Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The makers are running on a tight schedule to ensure their movie’s first part releases for Summer 2015. So they are leaving no stone untouched in this issue. However their behaviour is irking the Telugu film federation.
They complain that Baahubali makers are setting bad example to other film makers and very soon others will also follow the same trick. Federation president Komara Venkatesh also requested the actors and actresses not to participate in the shootings and support the workers. It is even said the associations are planning to attack the movie shooting in case they do not stop it.
However the producers of Baahubali have been shooting for the movie in the closed gates of Ramoji Film City. They are in no mood to stop the film shooting and are continuing the shoot with increased private security. They are even planning to approach for police protection in case there are any untoward incidents.
