A couple of days ago, suddenly a notice came up at Producers Council office in Tollywood where they pasted that the elections of the Council will be held soon and a list of candidates was also announced. This council actually consists of 1000+ producers and here goes the new development.
Not interested in entertaining all these producers among whom 90% of them haven’t produced a single film in the last 15 years, now a new guild has formed in Telugu industry. It goes by the title ‘Active Telugu Film Producers Council’, which has the likes of Allu Arvind, Dil Raju, Suresh Babu, BVSN Prasad, Supriya (for Nagarjuna Akkineni) as its members. While there are 21 such active producers, it is heard that 30 more newcomers have joined them.
And now, any decision related to film producing in Tollywood, these ‘active producers’ want to take it as per their convenience, while they may extend benefits to the age-old council as well that has more than a thousand members. However, veteran producers are said to be not happy with these developments.
On the other hand, active producers are saying that they lost representation at both AP and Telangana Chief Ministers due to lack of proper association in the last two years. So they want to do it this way.
