#OTT premiere charges of Rs.199/- is too expensive for any film. Our audience are prepared for only free content through subscription. The moment payment comes, they will watch only if it's an exciting & unavoidable film.

However, a set of people are feeling happy on seeing the price as they could watch the film with their family for just Rs.199. They felt that the money they would spend while going to theatres will be saved if this practice continues.
