Every time a Star Hero's flick hits the screens, Audience from Mass to High Class compete to watch it as early as possible. This is when huge scale of Black-Marketing of Tickets empty the pockets of Film Lovers. Some times, Even Theatre Owners encourage black marketing and even double the ticket price depending upon the demand. Revenue Department & Police who were supposed to take action on such practise remain silent as part of the understanding they have.
On few Occasions, We have seen such situation leading to tense moments. With Akhil - The Power of Jua, Akkineni Fans have sent a strong message to the theatres management.
Advance Bookings of 'Akhil' were opened since Yesterday in few territories. Nagarjuna Fans staged a protest in Kurnool against the sky-high prices of the tickets. Two of the Fans poured kerosene on their bodies standing before the theatre screening 'Akhil' and threatened to commit suicide. Police swung into action to bring the situation to normalcy. Fans were arrested immediately and they were taken to the nearby police station.
