Amid several controversies, backlashes and boycott calls, Brahmastra: Part One-Shiva, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan among others emerged as a successful movie of the year. After registering several new records, recently, on the occasion of National Cinema Day, the Hindi flick inked another tremendous record for highest ticket sales. Now, overwhelmed with the public response, slashing of ticket prices of the movie will continue for another four days. 

Yes, it has been decided that instead of the special ticket price of Rs 75, quoted for celebrating National Cinema Day, the tickets of the movie will be available at a cheap price of Rs 100. 

What is more important is that the offer is limited for four days only starting from Monday, i.e. Sept 26. 

The big decision was made considering the phenomenal response for Brahmastra on National Cinema Day. 

Following that, it was also announced that the ticket prices of Sunny Deol's recent release 'Chup' will also be slashed. However, the special offer will remain limited to some selected cities. 'Chup: Revenge of The Artist' stars Amitabh Bachchan, Pooja Bhatt, Dulquer Salmaan and Shreya Dhanwanthar in major characters.  

Continuing the trend, now, ticket prices of 'Dhoka: Round The Corner' also has been slashed to Rs 100. Dhoka: Round The Corner marks the silver screen debut of Khushali Kumar. The movie also stars R Madhavan, Aparshakti Khurana and Darshan Kumar in pivotal roles.

Since a few days, many have been holding the high ticket prices at different multiplexes as well as single-screen theatres responsible for the low turnouts. While high ticket prices are restricting the common people from accessing the multiplexes, many fail to grab a ticket at a cheap price at single-screen theatres for the rush of the hour. 

Such opinion has sparked a debate among many as almost all theatres and multiplexes across several states were houseful after the ticket prices were slashed for celebrating the spirit of cinema. 

The sole motto of observing National Cinema Day was to celebrate the successful reopening of theatres after the pandemic. It was an attempt by the Multiplex Association of India (MAI) to express 'Thank You' to the moviegoers as they played a pivotal role in reviving the cinema industry after the pandemic.
