The government of Andhra Pradesh seems to be hell bent on restricting the box office prospects of Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab which hit the silver screens on 9th of this month. They have imposed a cap on ticket pricing which in turn is affecting the film’s box office performance.
Yesterday, the high court passed an official order asking theatre managements to follow the ticket pricing system proposed by the state government.
Today, film distributors in Andhra Pradesh approached the high court against the state government’s arbitrary G.O. They have requested for an emergency hearing.
But given the fact that today is a Sunday, the chances of the court passing the final judgment are rather bleak.
Distributors are hoping that the court permits flexible pricing system at the earliest so that the film can have a fruitful run at the box office this Ugadi holiday.
