Kannada film fans may have to pay something extra for their tickets to view the most awaited film "Kranti Veera Sangolli Raayanna' starring Challenging Star Darshan. The costliest ever film made in Kannada is being produced by Anand Appugol and directed by Naganna.
The film's distributor H.D.Gangaraj who is returning to film direction work after a gap of nearly five years since the release of the film "Sivaji' starring Super Star Rajnikanth and directed by Shankar said that the ticket rates increase if any will be there for just a week, so as to mobilise more share for the producers. He said that the people who are prepared to pay twice the ticket amount or even more for purchasing the ticket in black will not mind this additional burden on them to view the film in the first week itself.
