Movie ticket prices may GO-UP

“If the government passes a GO, the producers will increase the ticket rates by 50 to 75% per cent for the two weeks of a film’s release and lower class tickets from Rs 6 to Rs 10 and Rs 10 to Rs 15, in order to earn more revenue,” says Prasanna Kumar who claims that if dubbed films have to be curbed in Andhra, the government should increase the entertainment tax on them from 16.5% to 30%. “Dubbed films have caused major damage to our Telugu films, so we have to stem their flow,” agrees producer Paruchuri Prasad.
