The Andhra Pradesh government's orders to bring down the movie ticket prices became a thorn in the flesh. To make the government change its stand on the issue the industry is giving its best effort. The moviegoers and the film lovers are closely observing the issue to know what happens next.
Sensational director Ram Gopal Varma entered the scene and became a big critic of the Andhra Pradesh government. Over the days, the filmmaker has been asking how come the government fixes rates for movie tickets when the producers invested money in movies.
All of a sudden, the issue became Ram Gopal Varma vs the YSRCP Ministers. The verbal war between the Ministers and the director is going on. After a series of attacks and counterattacks, Ram Gopal Varma and Cinematography Minister Perni Nani had decided to put a full stop to the issue by meeting in person.
But the movie tickets issue saw a big turn with the YSRCP rebel MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju aka RRR reacting to the issue. While giving his response about the same, the Parliamentarian went on to draw a comparison between the movie ticket rates and the fish rates.
Taking to his official handle of Microblogging Site Twitter, MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju shared the list of rates of various fishes. He had highlighted the price of a particular species and asked Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy if the poor can afford the high price.
The rate card RRR shared on his Twitter says that the price of Korameenu species is Rs 600. Taking a dig at the government's version on the tickets issue, RRR asked when the ticket rates for all the movies are the same then why can't the prices of all the species of fish be the same.
"Doesn't the poor have the right to eat Korameenu? How can the poor afford Korameenu when the price is Rs 600 Mr. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy? RRR asked in his tweet. Needless to say, RRR's post was retweeted by the netizens. Replying to the tweet, the netizens are coming up with funny comments for the post.
