Now, you will have to pay more to watch Salman Khan on screen. Confused?? Well, by pay more, we mean, the ticket prices for Kabir Khan’s film Ek Tha Tiger, are reportedly going to be costlier. The film is set to release on 15 August and headlines Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Reports have it that there will be a hike in the proces by 12-16 percent.
Says an insider, explaining the hike, “Most multiplexes rolled back the ticket prices (Mirror, May 3, 2012) a few months ago. So, a 12-16 percent hike will come out to be about Rs 20. Which is fair. After all it is the festive season. People are willing to shell out extra money for a Salman film especially during Eid. The multiplexes have taken this decision after a lot of research.”
This development has also been confirmed by Anand Vishal, Head of Operations, Fun Cinemas. He said, “Nationally, the price will rise by about Rs 20 per ticket. After all it is a premium product. This kind of thing is done during festive seasons. And today Salman films demand higher premium than before.”
Good news for people visiting single screen cinemas as they will not be increasing their ticket prices.
The booking for the film has already started, way ahead of routine.
