It is understandable if huge projects like ‘RRR’ and ‘KGF – 2’ get a raise in ticket prices. They are made on gigantic budgets and with the tight schedule, these movies need to get as much as they can within 2-3 weeks. Also, with the visual feast they provide, spending big bucks on these films can be justified. But the audience feel that paying over Rs. 300 for a star hero’s regular action entertainer is in no way acceptable.
There were many who were not happy with governments giving permission for a hike in ticket rates of movies like ‘Acharya’ and ‘Sarkaru Vaari Paata’. These films were made on big budgets but not as big as other pan-Indian movies. Increasing the ticket rates every time a star hero film comes out in theatres will make the movie lovers distance themselves from community watching which pushes them even close to the ever-expanding market of digital platforms.
Realizing this, Venkatesh and Varun Tej’s upcoming hilarious fun film ‘F3’ is going to release with regular ticket rates as per sources. The official information is yet to come out but this is making the filmgoers quite happy and relieved.
Star heroine Pooja Hegde will be seen shaking her leg in the special party song in the film, where Nata Kireeti Rajendra Prasad, Sunil, Ali, Raghu Babu and Vennela Kishore will appear in key roles. Sai Sriram cranks the camera, while Tammiraju is the editor. Harshith Reddy is the co-producer. Devi Sri Prasad is the music composer while AS Prakash is the editor. This high-budget multi-starrer is a sequel to ‘F2’ which came out in 2019 and turned out to be a huge hit at the box office.
Shirish is producing this much-awaited movie under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations with Dil Raju presenting it. As we know Venkatesh and Varun Tej are the main leads in this movie. While Tamannaah is paired opposite Venkatesh, Mehreen will be seen opposite Varun Tej. Anil Ravipudi is the director of this project.
