IIFA ticket price bugs Indian fans
The Ninth International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards show has created a lot of buzz with several cine stars descending on Bangkok but many Indians living in Bangkok are complaining about the exorbitantly priced tickets for the gala night Sunday.
"The last-row tickets are $1,000 and if you want better seats you will have to shell out between $2,000 and $3,500," said an upset fan.
Vicky who works in a shop in Silom neighbourhood said: "We would love to watch the awards night but I can't afford the tickets."
However, many NRIs in Southeast Asia have lapped up tickets, not letting go an opportunity to have a glimpse of their favourite stars.
