Sankranti Releases: TFI Appeals Against Fake News, Seeks Support

Sankranti is a time traditionally marked by the release of multiple films. However, the Telugu film industry is experiencing a clash going beyond the silver screen. Three prominent organisations within the industry recently convened a meeting, reaching out to five producers involved in the Sankranti race, urging cooperation and understanding in the face of increasing tensions.

The movies slated for the Sankranti competition include 'Hanu Man,' 'Eagle,' 'Saindhav,' 'Guntur Karam,' and 'Na Sami Ranga.' Notably, the organisations, backed by influential figures like T. G. Vishwa Prasad and Mass Hero Ravi Teja, successfully got the release date for 'Eagle' rescheduled to February 9, demonstrating a rare act of solidarity among mass heroes in the film industry.

This move towards collaboration is not limited to the Telugu film industry alone. Other prominent actors like Rajinikanth, Dhanush, and Siva Karthikeyan have also adjusted their movie release schedules to avoid clashes and promote a healthy competitive environment during the festive season. Despite such positive developments, concerns have been raised about the role of social media and certain media outlets that seem to be aggravating tensions within the industry by spreading misleading information, causing unnecessary rifts between fans, heroes, producers, and directors.

In response, the three organisations leading these initiatives have strongly condemned such practices and urged journalists and media owners to verify facts before publishing articles that may harm the industry's sentiments. The joint effort to ensure the success of every movie release and foster a positive environment for the industry's growth is a testament to the commitment of these organisations. As a final call for cooperation, a letter is being circulated to various journalists and media associations, seeking appropriate action against those who spread baseless and harmful comments, reinforcing the industry's plea for unity and prosperity.
