Yes you read it right. All in all, 250 theatres are missing in Tollywood making it tough for the films that are getting releasing tomorrow. Provided with this happening, films might lose huge chunk of revenues as they dare to commit at box office with this deficit.
The onset of severe cyclonic storm Hudhud has severely affected the three northern Andhra districts of Visakhapatnam, Srikakulam and Vizianagaram. Apart from the property damages created by this calamity, uprooting of electric poles and disruption of electricity supply in this region are another major concern of worry. Barring a couple of theatres, none have got restored and according to leading distributor Suresh Babu, almost 250 theatres are lying vacant without power.
Even, there is no generator based supply of power as diesel supply got hit badly. Vizag seems to be a major are where film revenues are literally high. Uncaring for this non-availability of theatres, Naga Chaitanya’s Oka Laila Kosam is heading for a release tomorrow. Let us see how trade circuits are going to respond about this happening.
