\'Kurukshetra\' gets more shows as \'Saaho\' gets poor response-1With the Prabhas-starrer "Saaho" performing poorly at the box office, the number of shows for Muniratna's Kurukshetra" has increased in Bengaluru's multiplexes.

However, Rockline Venkatesh, who is distributing "Kurukshetra", is not happy, as the team missed out on the Ganesh Chaturthi weekend, where they could have made more money.

"If a film in another language has a house-full show in Bengaluru, the high ticket pricing enables the exhibitors to earn a profit that is three times that of a Kannada film. The only way to curb this is to put a cap on the ticket pricing,” said Venkatesh.

The film, directed by Naganna and starring Darshan, Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja and Ravichandran, was doing well in its fourth week. However, its number of shows were brought down even though the makers had requested the theatre-owners not to do so.
