'Goodbye's release day tickets to be priced at Rs. 150
It seems like Bollywood films are on a spree of revising their ticket pricing strategies to make them more viewer-friendly. After the success of National Cinema Day—when tickets cost only Rs. 75—now, makers of the Amitabh Bachchan-Rashmika Mandanna starrer Goodbye have adopted a similar approach to woo audiences. Its tickets will be priced at Rs. 150 on the release day, i.e., Friday (October 7).
Why does this story matter?
- Several theaters across the county reported houseful shows on National Cinema Day (September 23), which triggered a conversation in the industry about slashing ticket prices.
- Recently, tickets for Brahmastra, Chup, and Dhokha: Round D Corner were priced at Rs. 100 (excluding GST) between September 26-29.
- Moreover, the makers of Drishyam 2 also offered a 50% discount on release-day tickets booked on Sunday (October 2).
Big B urged viewers to enjoy the film with families
Lead actors Bachchan and Mandanna shared a video—featuring the former—to announce Goodbye's slashed release-day ticket prices. He said in Hindi, "Our film Goodbye is releasing in theaters near you on October 7. Our team has decided the prices will be special that day." Adding tickets will be priced only at Rs. 150 this Friday, Bachchan urged everyone to enjoy the film with their families.
