TS allows theatres to hike ticket prices for KGF 2; multiplexes to charge Rs. 50 extra

Hyderabad: The Telangana government has permitted cinema theatres in the state to increase the ticket prices for the Kannada action film 'KGF: Chapter 2'. The movie is set to release on 14 April.

As per the government order, recliner seats in single theatres, IMAX/Large Screens (75 ft and above), and multiplexes can charge Rs. 50 extra for four days, i.e., from 14 to 17 April. Air-conditioned theatres can charge Rs. 30 more on the first days.

There is no change in admission rates for other categories (non-AC theatres).

Further, the government has permitted the screening of five shows of 'KGF: Chapter 2' between 7 a.m and 1 a.m from 14 to 17 April, relaxing its earlier orders.

The permissions have been granted temporarily, subject to payment of tax to the government on usual terms and conditions, and for the movie 'KGF: Chapter 2' only.

'KGF: Chapter 2' is the second installment of the two-part movie series that stars Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj, Srinidhi Shetty and others. The movie is set to release in Hindi and Telugu in Hyderabad. Ahead of its release, the first movie, 'KGF: Chapter 1', was screened for five days in PVR theatres across the city. The movie was initially scheduled to release in January but got postponed due to the Omicron variant.

In an attempt to publicize the movie, last month KGF producer's announced the launch of 'KGFverse'- a metaverse where poeple can create their own avatars and explore the movie's world in a virtual manner. This was launched on April 7.

Earlier, the state had allowed theatres to hike ticket prices for 'RRR'. It had permitted an increase of Rs. 50-100 depending on the theatre and seats. An 'RRR' ticket cost Rs. 413 in PVR and went on up to Rs. 500 in other multiplexes in the city.
