Indian cinema is slowly recovering after two waves of coronavirus pandemic. Tollywood had an exceptional December 2021 and is all set for a grand January 2022. Movies like Akhanda, Pushpa and Shyam Singha Roy fared well at the box-office and they paved paths for many new releases. Then came the Omicron variant of coronavirus which is shattering the world. The sudden rise in the new cases made biggies like RRR walk out of the race. the governments of New Delhi, Haryana and West Bengal ordered the closure of theatres while the governments of Maharashtra and Karnataka asked the theatres to operate with 50 percent occupancy.
The makers of RRR revealed that it would be quite difficult to release the film in these alarming situations. The cases would reach the peaks by the mid of January as per the predictions and experts said that February and March would be crucial and alarming. Most of the announced films in January, February and March will not hit the screens as per the plan. Tollywood is heading for one more closure because of the third wave of coronavirus. This would be a huge loss for the filmmakers as the interests would be heaped up. Radhe Shyam makers are strict on their stand but their plans may get changed. Several films in Hindi and other languages too are pushed for now.
