For the past few months, there have been discussions going on between Tollywood big heads and AP ministers over the hike of ticket prices along with other issues faced by Tollywood. Several releases have been stalled due to this issue.
A few days back, the AP minister said that last year Sankranthi releases Sarileru Neekevvaru and Ala Vaikuntapuramlo had said to have collected huge amounts and alleged these have evaded tax.
According to the latest reports, to verify tax payments of Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru and Allu Arjun’s Vaikuntapuramlo, the Andhra Pradesh government which is keen to track the collections has asked the distributors to present the area wise collection details with tax payments.
Some Twitterati say the AP government is attacking Tollywood because of Pawan Kalyan. Yesterday, Pawan Kalyan lashed at the Andhra government.
