When the government has imposed a strict lockdown of the film and television shoots, the industry big wigs have conducted several meetings with Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao and Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav. After a few discussions, the government of Telangana has allowed the resumption of film and television shoots, but with a few restrictions. Ace director SS Rajamouli was one of the frontline members of the industry who strongly fought for the resumption of the shootings. It has been almost a month since the government has given permission. But still, Rajamouli is yet to start the works of his upcoming film RRR. He stated that he will conduct a test shoot first with a limited crew. We hear that the director backed out from the idea as he needs a huge crew to shoot the film.
During the discussions, Rajamouli and a few other directors assured the government that films can get filmed with a limited crew. However, when he brainstormed with his team, the director realized that he needs at least 250-300 people. As of now, the government has ordered not to shoot with more than 50 people. In that case, it is highly impossible for Rajamouli to even conduct a test shoot. Even the cases are increasing every day.
