Restrictions for 'saving' the Telugu film industry.
The APFCC gave the nod to the proposals put forward by the Telugu Film Producers' Council at their meeting in the city on Monday. Members from the Producers' Council met APFCC representatives and discussed the proposed measures to keep dubbing editions in check.
The Producers' Council sought a hike in entertainment tax imposed on dubbing films from 20 per cent to 50 per cent, allotment of a maximum of 85 theatres for the dubbed versions and also restriction on releasing of dubbed films during the festive seasons. After taking note of the seriousness of the situation, the APFCC has decided to give the nod to execute the proposals.
It has been decided to approach the state government for increasing the entertainment tax for dubbed movies.
