The government of AP recently permitted hiked ticket prices for RRR. Now, the Telangana government has also further enhanced the ticket prices.
As per the new G.O passed by Telangana government, RRR’s ticket prices will be hiked by Rs 100. Meaning, the Rs 295 ticket pricing at multiplex theatres will be hiked by another Rs 100. However, this G.O is a carefully crafted one.
The Rs 100 hike will be in effect for the first three days (25 – 27 March). Then, Rs 50 hike will come to effect from 27 March to 3rd April. As for the single screens, the ticket prices will be hiked by Rs 50 for the first three days and Ra 30 for the forthcoming week.
There is already a concern about the unusually hiked ticket prices in Telangana. Now, the Telangana government has crafted a new G.O with further hikes which will be in effect for a week.
RRR‘s supporters argue that the film was mounted on a stellar budget and price hikes are a must. They say only fans younger section audience will watch the film for the first week and they won’t see hikes as a burden.
On the other hand, there is a talk that these abnormally high ticket prices will deplete the footfalls and will keep the family audience away.
