Going by the latest khabar, it seems the makers of Dhoom:3 may hike the ticket prices of their much-awaited action thriller
Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Dhoom:3 which will hit the screens on December 20 seems to be feeling the heat as most films have been easily minting big moolah at the box office recently. First Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express broke all the records and then Hrithik Roshan’s superhero film Krrish 3 took over in no time. With Dhoom:3 being the next big film, the makers want to make sure they don’t lag behind in the number game. Hence to make sure Aamir-Katrina’s film further raises the bar of the box office collection, we hear the makers of the film and distributors are considering hiking the ticket prices.
If reports are to believed then Dhoom:3 ticket may cost the audience Rs 500 at multiplexes. That’s not all! Since YRF’s Dhoom:3 is the first Hindi film to be released in the much talked about IMAX format, the ticket prices for the same are expected to be more expensive.
“As of now there has been no decision taken in terms of hiking the ticket prices for ‘Dhoom:3‘, however there are chances that the rates may be hiked for the release that coincides with the holiday season of Christmas,” a source from leading multiplex chain said.
While we agree that the audience has been waiting eagerly for Aamir and Kat’s film but with ticket prices as high as Rs 500, we are sure this will dig a bigger hole into the audiences pocket. There is a possibility the plan may backfire, right Bollywoodlifers?
