Want to lower the ticket prices

  • During the trailer launch of the film on Thursday, when asked that after “Rustom” and

  • minting more moolah, Akshay said: “I am interested in more eyeballs than the box office collection.
  • “In fact, I wish the ticket price of this film to be low so that more people can go and watch the film.
