“Around 6000 tickets ranging between Rs 750 and Rs 1500 were sold. We didn’t face any issue with the crowd. A total of 1000 tickets of higher denomination tickets (ranging between Rs 2500-Rs 10000) were sold out within the first two hours of the sales,” said Vinay Mruthyunjaya, KSCA spokesperson. The online sales, which was open on Saturday, has received a good response, said Vinay.
