Shah Rukh Khan To Host 65th Filmfare Awards in Guwahati
GUWAHATI: Shah Rukh Khan along with Vicky Kaushal will be hosting the 65th Filmfare Awards 2020 to be held in Guwahati on February 15.
According to a report in Box Office Worldwide, SRK will be leading the show and will host it. He will be seen portraying his usual quirks and will not be alone as Vicky Kaushal will be joining him as the co-host for the event.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard was signed between the Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) and The Times Group, organisers of the event on November 25, 2019 in Guwahati.
The event, worth anything between Rs 20 and Rs 30 crore, is likely to be held on February 15, 2020 held at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium at Amingaon, however, there is no official confirmation on this.
Authorities from the Assam government on August 10 said that Rs. 300 Crore has been sanctioned to promote the state as a global tourist destination.
However, the cost of tickets to the gala event in its earlier edition which ranged from Rs 10 thousand to Rs 3 lakhs held in Mumbai, does not augur much confidence as the whopping prices of tickets if continues in this edition might as well stop many common people from walking the red carpet with the Bollywood stars.
The previous year’s Filmfare which was hosted in Jio Garden BKC, Mumbai saw the ticket price ranging from whooping Rs 3 lakh with a minimum of Rs. 10,000. Other price slabs are Rs. 12,000, Rs. 15,000, Rs. 40,000, Rs. 50,000,Rs. 75,000,Rs. 1,10,000,Rs. 1,50,000,Rs. 2,25000,Rs. 3,00,000.
“If they keep the prices very high starting from Rs 10,000, I think many common people for whom its once in a lifetime opportunity to see all the stars at one platform will not be able to go. And Mumbai and Guwahati are not same when comes to disposable incomes of individual. So organisers should moderately price the tickets,” Megha Deb, a college going student told G Plus.
It was also announced that 50 per cent sale proceeds from the ticket sale will go the chief minister’s relief fund.
