Gautamiputra Satakarni’s first ticket sold for ₹1,00,100 in Hyderabad

A die-hard fan of Telugu actor Balakrishna has bought the first ticket of his 100th movie Gautamiputra Satakarni for ₹1,00,100 in Hyderabad at a benefit show.

The die-hard fan, Innamuri Gopichand, received the ticket from film actor Nara Rohit, a close relative of Balakrishna and nephew of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, The Hindu reported.

Though the trend of fans spending huge amounts to watch the first show of their favourite hero’s film is quite common in Telugu states, this is the first time that a benefit show ticket got such a massive response.


The money from the sale of the tickets would be donated to Basavatarakam Cancer Hospital.

Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital & Research Institute was established in 1989 by father of actor and Hindupur MLA N Balakrishna, late Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao.

The Hindupur MLA is presently heading the board of trustees managing the hospital.
