Just yesterday we reported that today’s release Rock On 2 might face a bit of hassle at the box office window considering the fact that the government had demonetized Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes from the Indian currency. However, the makers of the film, and the cast members too took to twitter and other social networking platforms to inform the audience that in conjunction with the demonetization of the currency notes PVR Cinemas had decided to forgo their convenience fee when booking tickets online.
In fact Shraddha Kapoor tweeted about the same while sharing an image of the announcement saying, “GUYS. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. GO AND WATCH OUR FILM RELEASING IN 2 days. #RockOn2 #Nov11”. Similarly, Farhan Akhtar too shared the same image saying, “Now here’s some good news .. please RT. #RockOn2 #2DaysToGo #nov11”, along with a post on the official facebook page of the film which carried a similar statement.

In response to the article, the PR agency of PVR Cinemas contacted us stating that the convenience fee gets waived off only if the patron applies a particular coupon code. Because the Rock On 2‘s team failed to give this crucial piece of information to the audiences last week, it had led to the confusion.
