Trade talk: Elections to boost up Tollywood collections?
Today is the D-day for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as they go in for voting. The use of EVM will speed up the process and it is predicted that maximum votes will be registered within the afternoon.
If the prediction turns out to be true, then it will be a huge boost to Tollywood. Since it is a holiday and Majili is the only film to be running with decent content, people might flock to theatres to catch hold of the film.
Further, Sai Dharam Tej’s Chithralahari will release on April 12. Since the election polling will be over by then, people will make use of the time effectively to watch movies. However, the box office performance of Chithralahari will depend on its content.
The summer holidays for Tollywood begins only now as the pollings are over. Let us wait and see how the summer releases date this time.
