    multiplex ticket capped rs 200

    Responding to a major demand by film audience the Karnataka Government has capped the prices of tickets at multiplexes at Rs 200. Ticket prices in Karnataka multiplexes are among the highest in India.

    Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have fixed maximum ticket prices earlier. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced the price cap in his budget speech today in the Assembly. The official request to cap ticket prices was made by Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce president Sa Ra Govindu and Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy chairman Rajendra Singh Babu to the government during the pre budget meeting recently. The request was made earlier also but the government has conceded it now. 

    Multiplexes will now have to compulsorily screen at least two shows of Kannada films during prime time. Kannada film makers have long complained how Kannada films were regulated to odd timings even when they had more audience than non Kannada films. Chitranagari at Mysore has also been announced.

    The State Government has also announced other sops for the film industry. The amount for the film workers welfare fund has been raised to Rs 10 crore from Rs 1 crore. The tax on non Kannada films which was Rs 1 per ticket has been increased to Rs 5 per ticket. This amount will be used for the promotion of Kannada films.

  • Rs 200 Movie Ticket: credit to Sa Ra Govindu And Rajendra Singh Babu

    jaimala, sa ra govindu

    'Success has many fathers while failure is an orphan' has been proved once again. The recent announcement in the Karnataka Government Budget about ticket prices is one such issue. The ticket prices has been capped at Rs 200 including in multiplexes. While there have been efforts by some people in the industry for the last few years in this regard, suddenly many people who had not even spoken a word about it earlier are claiming credit for the government's move.So who was behind the government's decision. Who pleaded with the government and convinced it?

    Rs 200 Budget Impact - Part 1 - KM Veeresh Writes

    First of all we should give credit to KFCC President Sa Ra Govindu, Chalanachitra Academy Chairman SV Rajendra Singh Babu, MLC Jayamala and the core committee members. They are the ones who put across the matter to the government on several occasion. They relentessly persued the issue and every time there was an opportunity to meet the government, CM or officials the issue was raised. 

    Many persons from the Kannada film industry have given memorandum to the concerned authorities regarding curbing ticket prices in multiplexes for the last few years. For the movie Actor produced by KM Veeresh under the banner Chitraloka.

    Multiplex Ticket Price Capped At Rs 200

    sa_ra_singh_jaimala.jpgMovies there was a huge problem from the multiplexes. Along with Actor, another Kannada movie Bhale Jodi was also being targeted by multiplexes. The booking website showed houseful marks and prevented audience from buying tickets. KFCC President Sa Ra Govindu immediately called all the multiplex persons and asked them to sort out the issue. Earlier Dinakar Toogudeepa's film Maduveya Mamateya Kareyole faced similar problem.

    Keerthi Shankarghatta popularly known as Kirik Keerthi was writing on his Facebook page and campaigning about multiplex ticket rates from last 4-5 years.

    During last year's Budget time Actor director Dayal Padmanabhan started an Online petition to cap the Multiplex ticket price at Rs 120. There was tremendous response from all over India and more than 50,000 people signed the petition including movie stars. Inspite of all the fight nothing much happened in the last year's budget.

    This year there was a different movement. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah who is very close to KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu heeded to the demand. Whatever Sa Ra Govindu has asked for the film industry, Chief Minister had responded positively. For example, nobody can forget the tragic incident during the shooting Mastigudi where actors Anil and Uday died. During the last State Award function Sa Ra Govindu and Rajendra Singh Babu gave a complete report to Chief Minister on the stage. In the same function Siddaramaiah announced Five lakh compensation each to the families of Anil and Uday. He also announced State Award function will be held every year on April 24th on Dr Rajkumar's birthday and increased the subsidy from 100 to 125 movies.

    Recently when reputed director A T Raghu was suffering from Kidney failure Sa Ra Govindu approached Chief Minister for help and got Rs 5 lakhs sanctioned.

    Before the budget KFCC President Sa Ra Govindu along with his office bearers, Rajendra Singh Babu and Jayamala had several discussions with Chief Minister and Government officials and explained the problems which Kannada film industry is facing. Finally in the budget whatever KFCC had asked the government has sanctioned. It just because of Sa Ra Govindu that all these things have been brought to fruit.
