With the announcement of GST, it was expected that there could be an increase in ticket pricing in Tamil Nadu. While the basic price will still be Rs. 120 at the maximum, the news comes from producer Dhanajayan who said that by adding 28% GST to the tickets, the total will come up to Rs. 153 which will play a significant role in upcoming movies and their reach among audience.
Most people are already wary of spending such huge sums in a theater and the increased tickets should further hinder them from going to movies as a family. It will be implemented on July 1st.
