Salman Khan plays the titular role in Bharat.

Actor Salman Khan’s films create records at the box office with huge collections. That is reason why cineplexes often hike prices of the tickets of such films. However, with Bharat, that may change as fresh reports suggest Salman has decided against imposing any hikes.

A Koimoi report quoted a source as saying, “It has become a norm to increase the ticket prices for every big film that releases to get in maximum money in the opening weekend. However, Salman Khan is of the opinion that the tickets should be reasonably priced to make cinema going experience affordable for his viewers. Even in the past, he has spoken against the ticket hike practices, and this time around, he has taken a strong stance against the norm. He is among the very few superstars who don’t believe in hiking rates.”

“The rate is lower than Kalank, which was priced 10% higher than the usual norms. Being Eid, Salman and his team want more and more viewers to visit the cinema hall,” the source added.
