As per the recommendations of the sub committee, AP Film Chamber of Commerce has decided to stall all the shootings for seven days. In these seven days, Film Federation is asked to take severe disciplinary action on the culprits who are present in the Film Federation. The proxy war between Film Federation and AP Film Chamber of Commerce is turned into a serious war now.
