The hugely anticipated Diwali flick by director Karan Johar, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, has seen its fair share of controversies leading up to its release tomorrow. Although it stars some of the biggest names of the Hindi film industry in the form of Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, what will indeed shock you is the price for which its tickets are trending at the box-office right now.
A popular theater chain in New Delhi is selling a premium ticket for the movie at Rs. 2200!
Yes, you read that right! Two Thousand and Two Hundred Rupees for a “Platinum Superior” ticket at PVR. Now get that tongue back in!
But this is not the first time a movie has fetched such a high ticket price at the place. Sallu Bhai’s Eid release, Sultan fetched a price of Rs. 1800!

Not just in Delhi, but another metropolitan centre for PVR in Bengaluru is witnessing a ticket price of Rs. 1100. And the most surprising part? It’s sold out!

In this day and age when the new “normal” fare for a movie ticket is Rs. 500, wonder why producers like Mr. Johar wallow and cry about “incurring losses”. Oh, right! That one was for the free publicity.
So, wanna catch a show?
