Why do Telangana people accept Telugu movies if almost all the movies show Telangana people in negative light?
One Andhra commenter asked:
Tell us what is the primary, if not the only, motive of a movie-producer? Making money or not? If a producer is dumb enough to make a movie showing discrimination, wouldn't his Nizam area collections tell him to correct his ways in the next movies?
Andhras reason this quite simplistically. They reason that a movie producer is interested in making money and nothing else. The producer is not sitting there to insinuate a message that Telanganas are inferior. There is no benefit for the producer doing that negative characterization because he will tend to lose certain portion of the audience.
Andhras ask if indeed there is a negative characterization of Telanganas in the movies, why do Telangana people go and watch these movies? They could have easily exercised their right not to watch these movies, right?
Since the collection from Telangana is quite substantial, isn’t it clear that people of Telangana gladly welcome these movies? Since they welcome these movies, isn’t it clear that there is absolutely no negative characterization of Telangana people in these movies?
