Several members of the Telugu Cine Workers Cooperative Society today met with Pawan and requested him to voice their concerns about their shelter. Pawan recollected that the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh CM Kotla Vijayabhaskar Reddy had allotted 67.16 acres of land to build houses for nearly 4 thousand workers when the Telugu film industry was shifted from Madras to Hyderabad.
“Our industry has grown big now and the livelihood of more than 30 thousand workers from AP and Telangana depends on it. The state government earns crores of rupees from the industry. I urge the Telangana government to provide shelter to our workers, Pawan said.
