The debate over movie ticket prices has become a never ending topic in the Telugu states.
Nani, who previously expressed his dismay at the Andhra Pradesh government’s decision to lower ticket prices, clarified what he meant and calmed his trolls with his statements.
Prior to the release of ‘Ante Sundaraniki’, Nani clarified, “Those who make disparaging comments about me because of the ticket prices have no basic logic.”
“They mix things up that have nothing to do with it. Someone will say something, and others will copy it verbatim. At no point did I ask for ticket prices of Rs 500. Did I survive on a pricing model of 20, 40 and 60 rupees,” he said.
Adding to the above, Nani said, “Basically I have asked the same Rs 100, Rs 120 that everyone is asking now.”
“‘RRR’ and other larger-than-life movies need a high pricing model, but not all movies do. I just asked that people could charge reasonable ticket prices for the entertainment they deserve,” Nani explained.
The pandemic caused significant damage to Nani’s earlier films ‘Tuck Jagadish’ and ‘Shyam Singha Roy’. While ‘Tuck Jagadish’ had an OTT release, ‘Shyam Singha Roy’ had atrocious ticket prices in the Telugu states. Despite a blockbuster hit, ‘Shyam Singha Roy’ had to face losses.
Nani and Nazriya starrer ‘Ante Sundaraniki’ will hit theaters on June 10.
