'Dhoom:3' tickets are not expensive: Aamir Khan clarifies
Friday, December 20, 2013 • Hindi Comments

Contrary to speculations that ‘Dhoom:3’ have hiked ticket price, YRF stated that it is not the case and the ticket prices of the film are very much on par with other big banner films (like Chennai Express or Krissh 3). The makers of the film are in fact very surprised with the strong rumours of the hike in the ticket prices floating around.

In single screens and multiplexes, the ticket prices of Dhoom 3 are in the usual price bracket of Rs. 50 - Rs. 380 depending on the show timing and theatre.

The rumours quote the ticket prices to be exorbitant which has created a misunderstanding among the audiences at large. Fact of the matter being, ‘Dhoom 3’ is the first Bollywood film to release in IMAX theatres. IMAX as a format is expensive and hence the ticket prices in these theatres would be in the price range of Rs 350 to Rs 900. However there are only 4 IMAX theatres across India.  Even the Hollywood films in IMAX like Gravity, which released a couple of months back was sold at the same price range and hence there is no real difference in the price factor.

Confirming the same, film’s protagonist Aamir Khan clarified to media that the film’s tickets are fairly priced. In fact he seemed to have been troubled with such talks and held a special press meet to clear things on this issue. Stated Aamir, "Dhoom 3 ticket prices are not expensive.  They are priced just like the other films that have released and in general ticket prices also differ as per the show timings.  It is also the first Hindi film to release in the IMAX format and there are a total of 4 such screens in India, two of which are in Bombay. Apart from those four screens, the tickets of Dhoom 3 are in the usual price range."

Journalists were curious to know why it was portrayed like the tickets were very expensive when there is no truth in it and so they asked Aamir if he sees some mischief around this..

To this Aamir said, "I’m also surprised where this has come from. We have clarified it before but it keeps coming up. The source of this mischief is unknown to me."
