The state currently has one of the highest ticket prices in the country and can cost an family exorbitant amount just to visit a movie theatre over the weekend.

The reason for the Karnataka state government to consider putting a cap on the price of a movie ticket came due to a movement led by a Kannada film director and producer Dayal Padmanabha.

Padmanabha, started a petition on change.org along with the Kannada film chamber, and has written a letter to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah seeking his intervention.

In his letter to the CM he requested to “cut the rate of admission and increase the rate of occupancy.” He further added that the move will help “all the movies” and not just the Kannada one.

The decision on the matter is expected to be taken during state budget, which currently is tentatively scheduled for March 18.
