Director Ram Gopal Varma has slammed the Andhra Pradesh authorities on the film ticket worth situation.
While no large director has spoken up relating to the problem, Ram Gopal Varma referred to as out the AP authorities for imposing curbs on cinema ticket costs.
During a current media interplay, RGV said that the YSRCP authorities has been exploiting their energy, particularly relating to film ticket costs.
Quizzed relating to the problem, AP Cinematography Minister Perni Nani additionally participated within the dialogue.
The interviewer said that the Tollywood filmmakers and heroes are exploiting their craze by mountain climbing the costs of their motion pictures.
To this, Ram Gopal Varma replied, “If there is any exploitation, that is YCRCP’s way of grabbing votes from the AP voters. YS Jagan held rallies and ran campaigns to win 150 seats in the elections.”
Varma continued, “If the election campaigns are not considered as exploitation, then why is this considered? Rajamouli has earned a following, and hence people will stand in queues to watch his movies.”
As the interview went on, Ram Gopal Varma gave logical reasoning within the favour of the moviemakers who get to resolve the worth of their film tickets.
“You go to a 5-star hotel, and pay double the amount for food, ambience, and other facilities. That is your choice. As the hotel maintains a certain brand value, he has all the rights to charge as much as he feels will balance his business.”
“How can you ask him to provide coffee or food for the same rate as much as the roadside hotel. It is the same with cinema?” Ram Gopal Varma conveyed.
“The same thing applies to the textile industry. The blazer you have worn will have a brand value.”
“You can’t go to the seller and say the material costs only this much. There is a value for the brand, which the buyer can select with choice,” Varma stated.
“After using it for 3-4 days, if you return the blazer, will the seller accept it? Then why are the cinema people expected to pay back the ticket amount if the audience don’t like the films,” the ‘Rangeela’ director stated.
