Telegu Film

A Telegu language film, Jalsa, appeared in this week’s Screen International “International Box Office Chart” at No 22 with a release on 454 screens across seven territories for a total of $4.6 million. I’m interested to see these figures which challenge the too common view outside India that only Hindi films matter in Indian Cinema. I also came across an old (1980) copy of the Guinness Book of Film Facts which had an entry on the long lists of Indian languages in which films have been made and which confirmed Tamil and Telegu as the languages with most productions in that year.
