Fan Buys Favourite Actor’s Movie Ticket For Rs 1 Lakh


Hyderabad: A devoted fan of actor Balakrishna stunned audiences and surprised the Telugu film megastar as well when he scrimped and bought a ticket paying Rs 1 lakh to watch ‘Gautamiputra Shatakarni’, the 100th film of the actor released on Thursday.

Gopichand Innamuri, 27, who owns a modest restaurant in Guntur, walked into the benefit show for cancer patients at a Hyderabad theatre, where organisers were hoping to sell tickets for anything between Rs 500 to Rs 2,000. When Gopichand handed over the cheque against the ticket, organisers were left speechless.

“I chose not to spend money unnecessarily on parties etc., to save it for charity. I was waiting for the movie to be released so I could donate it,” he said.
