The actor gets trolled by netizens for double standards'
Cinema ticket prices in Andhra Pradesh is a hot topic in Tollywood. At a time when the film fraternity is raising a hue and cry about the reduction in rates by the Government, Nagarjuna’s comments on the subject seem to have caused some turmoil.
While interacting with the media about his film, Bangarraju, scheduled for release during the coming Sankranti season, the actor was asked whether the slashed ticket prices in AP would affect the revenues of his film.
"I’ll not talk about politics on a cinema platform," he responded, and went on to say, "I don’t have any problem; the existing ticket prices are adequate for my film."
His comments seem to have upset many in the film fraternity, which has taken up the issue of reduction in ticket prices with the AP government. Though no one in Tollywood has openly reacted to Nag’s comments, Twitterati had a field day.
Netizens have dug out a decade-old video (2010) of a promotional event of Nag’s film Ragada, in which he expresses anguish over the AP government not hiking ticket prices. Was Ragada a filmi event or a political stage, trolls asked. Memes titled Nagarjuna’s Double Standards have gone viral.
