What is ‘Corporate Booking?’ It refers to the arrangement of bulk ticket reservations arranged between a corporation and the theatre in advance. This practice involves producers engaging corporate agencies to reserve a large number of tickets, commonly in multiplexes and occasionally in single-screen cinemas, especially during the initial days of a film’s release. Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki, Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra and Animal, Prabhas-starrer Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire, Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 are some of the films that have previously faced allegations of inflating their opening day collections.
