The Telangana Government has a special gift to treat Telugu cinema with. The team headed by the IT minister of the state, KTR says, the state will be the first in India to have a mechanism to crack down on the 1 Billion dollar video piracy market.
The Government is also trying to decentralize the laws, to block the torrent websites or sites which are streaming the pirated movies. This move is indeed laudable and Tollywood celebs are heaping praises on KTR, for coming up with an advanced mechanism.

"First initiative in the country against piracy by our Telangana Govt. Game changer in my opinion", read a tweet from KTR.
"@KTRTRS thank you is not enough. This is the best news ever!!!!!", said Lakshmi Manchu.
"Outstanding Initiative!!👍", tweeted Rana.
"Incredible !!! Thank you so much ! The whole industry will be indebted", opined thanked KTR.
"This is amaaazingggggg 👏🏻👏🏻 great initiative 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻", tweeted Charmi.
Looks like this is going to be huge, if it is implemented as efficiently as it is being promoted. According to the statistics mentioned by CNBC TV18, Tollywood has lost over 320 Cr, in 2015 alone, and one can imagine how much the mechanism is going to save, if it serves its purpose. Good days are ahead, probably!
