Producer Suresh Babu lashed out at the AP government’s G.O on ticket prices and questioned the logic behind it. He was talking to the media ahead of the release on Narappa. Speaking to the media, Suresh Babu pointed out that the ticket prices dictated by the government won’t even be sufficient to pay the electricity bills, leave alone theatre maintenance and management.
Suresh Babu further added that for any product the makers should be placing the price but here they are being made to follow the price set by someone else.
As per a new GO issued on 8th April, theatres across Andhra Pradesh have been given directives regarding the prices of the tickets. As per the directives, theatres situated in Municipal Corporation, Municipality, Nagar Panchayat, and Gram Panchayat each have been given a slab for ticket prices as per the theatre class.
Interestingly, Suresh Babu has gone for OTT deals for all his upcoming films Narappa, Drushyam 2 and Virata Parvam.
