The theatres screening Rajinikanth starrer movie Endhiran
in Bangalore have been raided by the Karnataka Commercial Tax
department. Most these theatres had hiked the ticket price by up to
three times and owners of these theatres have been slapped with a
fine of Rs 5 lakh.
The Tax department held the raids to check for tax evasion after
it was hinted that theatres screening Endhiran had hiked
the admission rates without taking prior approval. Entertainment
tax for non-Kannada films is 30 per cent. But these theatres were
collecting Rs 200 to Rs 300 per ticket without prior approval.
Meanwhile, It is also reported the distributors of
Endhiran have violated the rules of the Karnataka Film
Chamber of Commerce. The KFCC had allowed them to release it in
only 24 theatres, but it is said to have been released in100
theatres in Karnataka. Sources claim that it is being screened in
58 theatres in south Karnataka including Bangalore.
