Going to the cinema has become an ordeal for a commoner in the country. With the passage of time, cinemas have become a past time hobby and entertainment experience for a certain class of the country because of over priced tickets.

The current price of cinema tickets across the country range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 1300, making it impossible for a layman to step into a cinema house.

While many remain mum about it, Lollywood megastars Javed Sheikh and Sangeeta have expressed their concern about the skyrocketing cinema ticket prices.

"There should be reduction in prices in order to promote and encourage more people to come to cinemas and watch movies," said Sheikh.

Agreeing with Javed Sheikh, Sangeeta added; "This is in the best interest of the industry and it is truly something to think about."

Starring Danish Taimoor, Sangeeta's upcoming film 'Tum Hee Ho' is slated for release next week while Sheikh's movie 'Wujood' which also stars Taimoor as the leading face of the film awaits a confirmed release date.

With many promising movies set to release in the months to come, will the cinema authorities consider the advice of these two Lollywood stars? We'll have to wait and see.
