The ban on the 500 and 1000 rupee notes is seriously affecting the film industry. While the films which were released this week are getting very fewer collections, the films which are scheduled to release in next two weeks are being postponed. Already, Allari Naresh’s Intlo Deyyam Naakem Bhayyam was postponed to December first week. Now, the latest entrant to this list is Vijay Anthony’s Bethaludu.
By scoring a super success this year with Bichagadu, music director turned actor Vijay Anthony, planned to release his upcoming film Bethaludu on November 17. But the sudden decision of demonetization of higher currency notes has affected the business of the film in few areas. Also, many people are not going to theaters because of the shortage of smaller denomination notes. Hence, makers backed out from releasing the film on scheduled date. A new release date will be announced soon.
