As previously announced, Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce will shutdown all releases from March 1. They are protesting against the exorbitant pricing levied by digital providers. All theatres will be shut in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh from March 1.

They have invited Tamil Producers Council also. A meeting was held recently to discuss this. Reports say that digital service providers are planning to meet ​m​embers from all the four southern states to reach a solution.

March is the perfect time to shut down theatres as they are no big releases due to exams.
