Even as producers have sought permission from the government to resume the shoot of films which need only a few days’ work to complete production, producers say 84 films could release between July and October if everything goes as per plan.
This includes six films of GV Prakash, five films of Sibiraj and four films of Prabhu Dheva!
Actor-producer RK Suresh, who was one of the producers who met the state’s I&B minister on Monday, says, “We think these many projects have the potential to hit screens (and OTT platforms) after their complete works are done. But the big question is when would theatres be opened? Theatres may not be allowed to function with AC. In such a scenario, we have to wait for a month’s time to see if situation changes in our favour.”
