The Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council has announced it would not release any movies from October 6, which pointed at a crisis just before Diwali releases.
A 180-ml alcohol bottle would now be costlier by Rs 12, while the price of beer would go up by Rs 10, an official with the state liquor retailing company TASMAC said.
"It is good that the government has chose to reduce the tax". The new ticket price is expected to come into effect from Diwali.
He added that the government has also agreed to increase the ticket prices, for multiplexes it would be between Rs 50 and Rs 150, Air Conditioned theatres Rs 40 and Rs 100 and non air-conditioned theatres Rs 30 and Rs 80.
TNGEA leader M Anbarasu told Express, "We have demanded that the minimum pay should be fixed at Rs 26,000 but the government has given only Rs 15,700". "To which they said it was under consideration", TFPC President Vishal told the media after the meeting with the chief minister.
He said the producers' council will work along with the government to ensure that the new regulations are being followed across single and multiplex screens.
The Central government on Thursday dispatched a mediacal team to Tamil Nadu to investigate the outbreak of dengue in many of its districts, said Health Ministry officials.
His assertion comes against the backdrop of cinema theatres charging exorbitant ticket prices for movies of top heroes like Rajinikanth.
