Given the hike in ticket rates, reducing in GST over the years, it has become relatively easy for films to go past the Rs 200 crore club. A stat for the box-office of #Dabangg3 in terms of footfalls vis.a.vis box-office collections in the tweets mentioned below.

Footfalls similar to:

#Sultan: Rs 420 cr

#Dabangg: Rs 340 cr

#Dabangg2: Rs 280 cr

#PRDP: Rs 311 cr

#Ready: Rs 250 cr

#JaiHo: Rs 195 cr

Basically, #Dabangg3 needs to sell 2.10 cr+ tckts to emerge second HGOTY, and 2.40 cr+ to emerge HOGTY. Last two #Dabangg's have 2 cr+ Footfalls

In today's time, an event needs to sell merely 2 crore tickets to go past 250 cr mark, 2.5 cr tickets to go past 300 cr mark at the domestic box-office. We celebrate business, whereas in reality, the footfalls have gone drastically down in the last few years. #WakeUpBollywood

The adjusted collections of 3 to 4 year old films like #PK, #BajrangiBhaijaan and #Dangal today will be AT ANOTHER LEVEL. Given the average ticket price of event films today, the collections would be:

#PK: 480 crore plus

#BajrangiBhaijaan: 485 crore plus

#Dangal: 505 crore plus

We aren't really growing as an industry, we are going down, down and down when it comes to the number of people visiting cinema hall, though BO is increasing due to inflation. Slowly and steadily, movie watching is becoming a RICH MAN'S medium, and this has to be avoided

As an audience, I wouldn't mind spending Rs 100 for a "MEDIOCRE" film, as it would result in "TIMEPASS" but I would definitely have a second thought if I am made to pay Rs 200 for a "MEDIOCRE" film. Hike in rates is primarily the reason why average films are no longer sustaining

Films are coming on the digital platform and satellite within a month and a half, so why would I spend Rs 200 for something mediocre, when it's available on my laptop/phone in a span of 45 days? As a producer, set your priorities - if you want to get audience in cinema or on TV!

My take:It is for those who celebrate 100/200cr at today's age especially for Superstars.

True picture is this

Main issue is that those big footfalls were coming from Salman and occasionally Aamir.

Right now industry as a whole is doing much better in general, we have so many 1cr footfall movies or close.

But Salman's performance has been down since Sultan and Aamir as usual is slow. The 3rd biggest driver of footfalls (SRK) has seen a decline, that's why the 3cr footfalls is missing.

But otherwise this year has 2 movies of 2.5cr footfalls (only happened twice this decade in 2013 and 2016), so it's fine. We just need that one big driver of footfalls and that can only happen with Sallu and Aamir now. Otherwise we need a new superstar.

Laal Singh Chaddha Will Cross Baahubali 2 Hindi Collections With Reception Like Dangal

Had Ticket Prices Been Low Thugs Of Hindostan Would Have Done Around 200 Crs Instead Of 140 Crs

It Also Explains How Suddenly Akshay Who Couldn't Touch 133 Crs Till 2018 Suddenly Is Able To Do So Multiple Times Within Span Of 1 Year

If Bollywood Has To Grow In Real Terms Then Apart From Making Good Films Industry Must Make Sure That Ticket Prices Are Kept Under Check So That Even Common People Can Enjoy It, Lower Middle Class Cant Afford Other Expensive Entertainment Facilities Atleast Dont Take Away Facility Of Watching Cinema In Theatres

Single Screens Ticket Must Not Exceed 100 Rs And Multiplex Ticket Must Not Exceed 300 Rs, In The Long Run It Wont Make Much Difference In Collections Bcz If Ticket Prices Are Lower More People Will Watch The Film Thereby Balancing Loss For Lower Ticket Price And This Way Industry Will Grow Which Is Most Important Or Else The Way Things Are Going We May Only Have Some Elite Multiplex In Country In Malls, General Public Will Only Watch Films On TV, Mass Cinema Will Come To An End And Only Class Cinema Will Be Made!
