Industry Gossip states that Nandamuri Balakrishna has talked with the Producers’ Guild in TFI and played important role in Strike call-off. Telugu Film Industry Producers shaken by audience reluctance to come to theatres as they used to pre-Covid-19 pandemic era, called for shootings strike.
On 18th August 2022, Producers called off the strike and Chamber of Commerce has announced that the shootings will start regularly from 24th August. On the same day, Balakrishna is flying out of country for his next film shooting.
As his producers and many others would lose money due to cancellation as a result of strike, Balakrishan talked with all the producers in the Guild, who have been adamant about the strike. He asked them to finish the process sooner and allow shootings from 24th.
Well, all producers have decided to meet as frequently as they can and regularise the situation as much as they can to save themselves from losing more money. The first thing is that the producers have decided to rework their next films and schedule them with frequent gaps.
