Ever since the formation of separate Telangana and forming the new government, CM KCR has been working in tandem with the Telugu film industry and its development. KCR already visited the Ramoji Film City and expressed his support to the Om City entertainment theme park proposed by Ramoji Rao. The CM is also mulling over setting up a Hollywood film studio in nearly 2000 acres near Rachakonda on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
Now, as per our close sources, KCR will visit Superstar Krishna's residence and interact with several Tollywood bigwigs over lunch in the first week of November. This move by KCR will be observed keenly by film and political circles as KCR's counterpart and AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu is working on developing the film industry on the beach road in Visakhapatnam.
Film industry adds its glamor and charm to the cultural vibrancy of Hyderabad and if a majority of Tollywood biggies either shift or extend their studios and production houses in Vizag, Hyderabad will lose its shine to an extent. Not only this, shifting or extension of the film industry in AP means the Telangana state losing crores of income through taxes and other revenues.
Will KCR request the participation of Tollywood biggies in his dream project, the new film city, in this luncheon? A press meet with KCR along with Tollywood's bigwigs is also expected to be held in this regard.
