Serious financial ramifications were felt by studios, filmmakers and theater owners.

On his Twitter account, Chiranjeevi wrote, “The Chief Minister assured all assistance to the film industry which will come as a big relief to the thousands of daily wagers. On the behalf of the entire film industry, I thank the CM for patiently hearing the case of the film industry. He assured all possible assistance to the film industry.”

Bahubali fame S S Rajamouli whose RRR film shooting has been put on hold due to coronavirus outbreak tweeted, “I sincerely thank Telangana CM, KCR garu for being empathetic to us as we discussed the possibility of bringing back normalcy to the sets of films. He heard us patiently and offered much-needed words of solace. He promised to bring to a resolution very soon and we may get back to do what we love the most! Thanks to Cinematography Minister Talasani garu for his kind gesture of taking this to CM garu’s notice 🙂

” Gourava C M K C R gari, spandana film industry ki chala santhoshanni ichindi. Desham, Rashtram, Abhivrudhi Amshala patla, C M gari vision andari lo chaithanyanni nimpindi,” tweeted N Shankar.

All the luxuries and remunerations will be slashed in the coming days because of the coronavirus outbreak. I assume that it will take two complete years to recover from the pandemic.
