It is usual for festival releases to hike their ticket price but Thugs of Hindostan, the Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan-starrer, which is slated to release this Diwali, is likely to burn a bigger hole in your pocket.

According to Bollywood Hungama, Yash Raj Films, which is producing the Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial, has issued a clear mandate to all the film exhibitors that Thugs of Hindostan’s tickets be priced at least 10% more than the cost of the tickets of Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju (in multiplexes) and Remo D’Souza’s Race 3 (in single screen theatres), two of the highest grossing films of the year.

As per the report, a part of the email sent by YRF’s distribution team to cinema halls reads, “Please ensure all cinemas increase rates charged for Sanju by a minimum of 10% for the extended 4-day weekend. On weekdays, the rates must be dropped by 25% from weekend rate.

“Please e-mail us the rates charged by you at all your cinemas for Sanju and proposed rates of Thugs Of Hindostan for the extended 4-days weekend and weekdays. It is mandatory that all cinemas should confirm the rates and show timings with our office before commencing the advance booking.”

An adaptation of the 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug, Thugs of Hindostan has been extensively shot in Malta and Rajasthan. After Dhoom 3, Bang Bang, Baahubali 2 and Padmaavat, it will be the fifth Indian film to release on IMAX.

Also starring Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Lloyd Owen in important roles, it will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu. It will release on November 8.
