Akkineni family multistarer film, Manam is successfully running at the box office. The amazing consistency of the film is surprising the critics as well. But the Telangana bandh call given by TRS today had abruptly stopped the film’s run. According to reports, the morning and matinee shows of the film in almost all main centers are confirmed to get disrupted. This will for sure affect the film collections in the crucial Nizam region.
The producers and distributors are saddened by the loss of revenue and are hoping to revive the movie screening at least by evening shows. Film industry is one the prime industries hit by the state bifurcation issue. Shootings were stalled, theaters were vandalized and releases were postponed for several months. Looks like situation does not get any better even after the state bifurcation.
