After hearing the case filed by the theatre-owners in Andhra Pradesh, the state High Court has suspended the GO 35, which was introduced by the government in order to reduce the movie ticket prices. The High Court opined that the state government has no right to decrease movie ticket prices.
This verdict has given a boost to the theatre owners as well as the producers of Telugu cinema. They are now allowed to hike the prices as per the requirement. On the flip side, the government of Andhra Pradesh stated that it will challenge the court’s verdict by filing a counter-petition.
With this statement, it is proved that YS Jagan and his government are in no mood to leave the film industry. If their counter-petition also fails, what will be the next move? If not ticket prices, Jagan may impose some other rule on the film industry. That’s for sure, say the sources.

We have to wait and see.
