Several top stars of Tollywood had unanimously promised to shoot their big budget films in AP to promote the Telugu industry in the state. However none of them kept this promise.
On persuasion of the former TDP government, stars like Chiranjeevi, Nani and several others agreed to shoot a minimum of 10 days each in the state to promote the artists and technicians in the state. But none of the stars fulfilled this promise and listed trivial reasons like too much crowd and travelling problems.
Officials from the AP State Film, Television and Theatre Development Corporation feel that these stars have the social responsibility to promote the industry in AP so that it benefits in terms of revenue along with Telangana. However, we will have to wait and see what the YCP government decides on promoting film industry in AP.
