After persuading Centre to bifurcate state, TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao is leaving no stone unturned for the new state of Telangana. Now, KCR has apparently proposed for creating T cinema (Telangana Cinema). He has asked director N Shankar (of Jai Bolo Telangana fame) to come up with a vision document in order to look into the woes and plight of Telangana filmmakers.
The latest buzz is that Telangana filmmakers (producers and directors) are on the way to create new T forums such as Telangana Producers’ Council, Telangana Film Directors Guild, Telangana Film Chamber of Commerce. Allani Sridhar, N Shankar, Sanayadi Reddy are likely to take plunge and may play vital role in to be formed action committees. KCR and TRS party are trying to shatter the monopoly and high-handedness of big wig Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema filmmakers in this region. KCR may put check to monopoly of Seemandhra filmmakers.
Director Harish Shankar, Sampath Nandi are new-age popular filmmakers from the region while Dil Raju and others are noted producers in the same region. However, it’s still unclear how it shapes up. Top producers who owns Studios are now in dilemma.
