The inauguration of Hyderabad Metro Rail project is long pending. The TS Govt. has so far deferred many deadlines due to some issues regarding permissions and contractor. It seems that not just the common man but Telugu filmmakers are also keenly waiting for the Metro inauguration.
Filmmakers always stay in hunt of new locations to give a fresh feel to viewers. Almost every inch of Hyderabad city has already been explored in our films so the new Metro stations are being seen by makers as fresh places to shoot films.
Earlier, filmmakers used to think twice before shooting at MMTS stations in hyderabad given how crowded they were and the difficulties in getting permissions. However, as the new Metro project has brought in umpteen number of stations, the crowd is expected to be lesser and the stations will be equipped with modern amenities to give a rich feel on silver screen. Several Telugu films have earlier used MMTS stations in their films effectively, the best example is the stunning action sequence and a few rom-com scenes that were shot in ‘Pokiri’.
This enthusiasm of Telugu filmmakers will help the TS govt and L&T too. First, the govt. can earn some bucks by allotting permissions and the most important, free publicity for the new Metro as movies are often rated the best source of promoting brands.
