Is Nani offer applicable to Pawan film as well?

Is Nani offer applicable to Pawan film as well?

For the last few days, there has been a talk in the Telugu film industry circles that Andhra Pradesh minister for information and public relations Perni Venkatramaiah alias Nani has made an offer to the industry people.

The offer is that the film exhibitors are free to sell the cinema tickets at any rate during the Sankranti season and the government would not interfere in it.

“You can fix the cinema ticket price according to your own will and wish – it might be old rates or even Rs 250. Nobody will raise any objection,” he is learnt to have assured the film industry people.

When some industry people approached him, Nani reportedly commented that nobody would force them to implement GO No. 35, reducing the cinema ticket prices.

“The officials will not insist on the new rates during this Sankranti season. So, you can go ahead with increased ticket prices,” he reportedly told them.

Following these reports, it is being speculated that the ticket prices for S S Rajamouli’s mega film “RRR” to be released for Sankranti is going to be not less than Rs 250. So will the case with Radhe Shyam, starring Prabhas. This is definitely a good news for the film makers planning to release their films this season.

Now, the question is whether the offer made by Perni Nani would be applicable even for “Bhimla Naik” starring power star and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan, which is also slated for Sankranti release.

Apparently, the makers of Bhimla Naik are firm on releasing the film on January 12, since it can also cash in on the enhanced ticket price offer made to RRR, Radhe Shyam and other films.

“If Bhimla Naik gets delayed, Nani’s offer might be withdrawn and there would be once again harassment in the name of implementing the GO No. 35, because it is Pawan Kalyan’s film,” sources said.

But one wonders whether Perni Nani’s offer would really be honoured by the district administrations controlling the cinema ticket prices, because Jagan himself has ordered reduction of ticket prices. 

If it really happens, then it becomes a good news for the industry. But why has Jagan become unpopular by reducing the ticket prices all these days?
