Just before the film's release, Aamir, 51, had appealed to the distributors not to hike ticket prices of Dangal. "I want this film to reach more and more people. I have requested theatre owners not to increase the ticket prices. It's good if the film is declared tax-free. The audience benefits if the film is tax-free. We have applied in 12 states for making it tax-free," a press release shared by a leading news agency quoted Aamir Khan as saying.
