In less than a few hours, the movie lovers will get to witness the first biggest release post the second wave of COVID-19. Nandamuri Balakrishna starrer Akhanda is hitting the screens. In a few days, other biggies Pushpa, and RRR are also hitting the screens. Telangana high court gave a green signal for the hike of movie tickets for these films.
The theatres association approached the High Court, asking for a hike in the film tickets price and the court responded in favor of them. The association initially made an appeal to the state government but the government did not respond. Later, they approached the High Court and filed a petition.
Ahead of Akhanda’s release, the Telangana High Court heard the plea and gave permission to increase the movie ticket rates for big-budget films. With this new development, there will be a hike of 50 rupees per ticket in the state.
This is a big relief for the producers of Akhanda, Pushpa, and RRR in Telangana state. The film industry also appealed to the government of Andhra Pradesh but the government decided against increasing the rates of movie tickets.
Pushpa is hitting the screens on 17th December and RRR will release on January 7th.
