Kamal Hassan, the actor known for his novel thinking has come out with a fresh idea to abolish piracy in the film world.
He wants to reconstruct the ticket sales system in the state for the forthcoming releases. He suggested the idea of selling tickets through famous retail shops like Reliance, Spencers or Trinethra.
According to the actor he would have experiments his new plan from his next release Dasavatharam.
Kamal was one of the speakers at a conference on "riding high on the retailing wave" organized by FICCI in Chennai. Speaking on the subject of retailing, Kamal said, "Cinema might seem too distant a cousin to this retailing, but I have some ideas on how cinema tickets could be sold through retail. One can never miss the opportunity to make the people visit theaters often. I will probably start this with my new film. It would surely check black-marketing of cinema tickets."
He also appealed the retail giants to come forward to practice the system through their outlets. Anyway, there will be no trouble for the viewers in getting tickets for Dasavatharam!
