The dubbing artistes and other technicians on Friday called off their agitation taken up in protest the decision taken by the Telugu Producers Council. The protest is being held for the past three days in front of the Film Chamber. Film Chamber President G Viswanath and MAA president Nagababu gave the lemon water to Vennelakanti, Ravi who were on a hunger strike at around 11.30 am on Saturday. Film Chamber president Viswanath says, 'A number of people were against the decision taken by the Producers Council. Of course, it is unfortunate that the Producers Council should not have taken such a decision unilaterally. We condemn the decision taken up by one wing of the film industry on its own. We will conduct a meeting and settle the problem amicably.'
MAA president Nagababu says, 'For any film dubbing artistes are equally important like the hero and heroines and other artistes. Everyone should live happily is my policy. I thank Vennelakanti, Ravi, Sriramakrishna and others for calling off their agitation by honouring our word. We will try our best to solve the problem. As the president of MAA, my duty is to do justice to all the artistes. I will talk to the film producers and tell them to take a positive decision in this regard'. Sriramakrishna, Ravi and Vennelakanti and others thanked those who extended their cooperation for the agitation taken up by the dubbing artistes and technicians.' Hyderabad State Film Chamber president Vijayender Reddy, secretary Muralimohan, former president of the chamber Bhaskar Rao and others accompanied Nagendrababu and G Viswanath. Hyderabad State Film Chamber secretary Muralimohan says, 'The Producers Council is alleging that over 200 films failed to see the light due to non-availability of theatres and were remaining in the labs. It is not true. They were left behind in the labs due to the personal problems of those respective producers. Let them release five films now and we are ready to make the theatres available to them.
