HYDERABAD:  TJAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram requested the state government to encourage small and low budget movies.

He submitted a memorandum to cinematography minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav  here on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters later, Kodandaram said that it was not good if the film industry was in the hands of four or five families. The small and medium films should be encouraged, he said. He also requested the state government to change the present entertainment tax structure. He wanted the government to make modifications in the existing rules to make entertainment tax rational.

Srinivas Yadav reportedly assured Kodandaram that the changes in tax structure would be brought in soon.

TJAC chairman also urged the minister to give recognition to Telangana Film Chamber and start a film institute on the lines of Pune Film Institute.
