Director SS Rajamouli and producer DVV Danayya somehow managed to convince the Andhra Pradesh government, and the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, to increase the ticket prices in the state, for RRR. Given that it was made on a massive budget, and that the stakes were high, the AP government seemed to have agreed to increase the prices, but only for a limited time period.
Now, three more films are in the works to achieve a similar feat. These include KGF 2, Acharya and Sarkaru Vaari Paata. The films have been doing good pre-release business in AP, and are hence hoping that they would be able to convince the CM. However, it is to be remembered that the AP government, and CM Jagan, clarified ahead of the release of RRR, that no other film would be given any special permissions anymore, unless and until they have shot at least 20% in AP.
While Mahesh claimed that 20% of SVP was shot in AP, there’s no clarity how much of Acharya was shot in AP – if it was, in the first place. Then of course, it needs to be seen how the AP government would react to KGF 2, given that it’s not even a Telugu film.
