Siddharth, who was recently seen as Sharwanand's antithesis in 'Maha Samudram', has questioned the logic behind regulating movie ticket prices. Without referring to the state of affairs in Andhra Pradesh explicitly, the 'Bommarillu' actor took a swipe at the YCP government's policy.

The actor began saying that an A/C restaurant is never asked how much to charge for a plate of idli or a coffee and rightly so. "Why is it that the film industry has to constantly be seen as a problem area by governments intent on telling them how to recover their investment?" the multi-lingual star questioned.

He opined that the Government Orders for ticket rates and limits on the number of shows are a violation of the MRTP Act. "Give cinema and cinema halls a chance to survive. Please," he appealed.

Sid then made a suggestion to the governments. "Please calculate average house rent and per capita consumer spend on durables in an area, and device a formula to set ticket rates for cinemas in that area, if not universally," he tweeted.
