Anurag Kashyap on unaffordable ticket prices

The filmmaker made a comparison among different practices in Hindi and South film industry and opined, “There is a ceiling for ticket prices in Telugu. Regardless of how massive your film is, a luxury seat cannot cost more than 250. You can’t price your tickets higher than that, it doesn’t matter if you’ve made RRR or a small, independent film. We spend unnecessarily, which is being corrected now.” He also pointed out, “When you have more money, spend tend to spend more on marketing, and this puts pressure on smaller films. This is why they aren’t able to compete in this ecosystem.”
