Already there is a huge buzz that likely Chief Minister of AP, Chandrababu Naidu is exercising plans to give funds, tax benefits and other allowances for Telugu Film Industry people to settle down in Vizag. But small fish will move to a new place only when a big fish is around. Naidu is right now striking it hard on the same.
Big news breaking out from close TDP circles is that Chandrababu has already helped Eenadu scion Ramoji Rao to acquire 500 acres land nearby Vizag, on the way to Anakapalli, at which he wants to build another version of Ramoji Film City. At the same time, Megastar Chiru and his confidante Ganta Srinivasa Rao have hundreds of acres in Bhimli road where they want to build a ‘Mega’ film city. Latest reports indicate that Naidu is helping these two projects take off very soon by helping them get all required permissions and also money-grants from banks. If Vizag could be wrapped around with two Film Cities, undoubtedly many Andhra based people technicians will be planning to relocate.
With KCR calling some bitter shots on Andhra employees, even movie producers, distributors and buyers from Andhra are not willing to bend their heads before the first CM of Telangana. So, Naidu’s moves might attract all of them towards Vizag.
