The government of Andhra Pradesh has taken a strong decision regarding the presence of Tollywood film industry in Andhra Pradesh.

Currently, Tollywood’s base is set in Hyderabad and it is not expected to go through any major relocations anytime soon. However, Babu is trying to attract mid-range filmmakers by offering subsidies.

Apparently, the government of AP will be giving a subsidy of 10 lakhs for mid-range movies if the movie makers establish their offices in Amaravati. This offer is valid only for the first 15 applicants. Also, a related GO is being prepared and that will surely attract filmmakers.

In addition to this, the government will deduct the GST charges on cinema tickets from 14% to 9%.

It is already known that the likes of Rajamouli and Daggubati Suresh have stated they will try their best to utilize the resources in Amaravati and set up their movie offices in that region.
