The Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber has finally decided to take measures to control dubbing movies which are having heavy impact on Telugu movies in the state. The Chamber has passed two resolutions in accordance with this. One of those is the ban on dubbed films during festivals. Another key resolution is the increase in surcharge from 20% to 50% on dubbed films.
A special committee comprising of Suresh Babu,Dil Raju, Vijayender Reddy and Natti Kumar has been appointed to look into the issue. They have also resolved to increase the pressure on Government to increase the tax.
We will have to wait and see how the exhibitors and distributors react to this decision.
