Govt Permission For RRR 1st Day Ticket @ Rs 1000
SS Rajamouli is presently working on #RRR starring NTR and Ram Charan. The story is set in the pre-independence backdrop with a patriotic flavor. #RRR is being made with a huge budget of nearly Rs.400 crores. The movie's pre-release business is touching the sky as #RRR is the next film of Rajamouli post-Bahubali.
Considering the huge investment involved in the film, the recovery becomes a gigantic task for the makers. Non-theatricals could bring revenue to the makers but theatrical collections play a major role. The close friends and well-wishers of Rajamouli are reportedly giving him suggestions to try for ticket price hike for the faster recovery. They are reportedly advising the Rajamouli team to take permission from the government for the price hike to the tune of Rs.1,000 per ticket in multiplex screens and Rs.300 in the stand-alone theatres.
They are saying that price range may appear high on the surface level but it is not high. They are reminding the scenario of black tickets hungama during the release of 'Baahubali: The Beginning' & 'Bahubali: The Conclusion'. Audience shelled out even Rs 2,000-3,000 per ticket in black to watch the film and everybody knows it.
The demand for the first day tickets will much higher for #RRR because it is Rajamouli + NTR + Charan. We all know about the fan base of NTR, Charan and their penetration into the mass audiences. They can single-handedly pull the crowds to the theatres. As the state governments are also giving permission to the high-budget films to hike the ticket prices in the first week, Rajamouli's close friends are pushing him to go for the price hike. Let us see what happens!
"It can be reasonable if the ticket prices in multiplexes (only for the 1st day) range between Rs 500 and Rs 1000, while the stand alone theatres may go upto Rs 300" said a trade analyst.
