Indian film star Ajay Devgn has launched TicketPlease, a new online ticket booking service that will allow consumers to book tickets for films, plays, concerts and sporting events from the comfort of their couch. The service, which is being run by Jimmy Mistry, also has the backing of eminent Bollywood personalities like Sanjay Dutt, Nitin Manmohan, Vatsal Seth, Ramakant Tibrewal, Vijay Jain and Amit Sharma.
Besides offering tickets, the website will feature reviews, news and discussion forums. TicketPlease is hoping to directly connect fans with celebrities through celeb blogs and interviews. An online store with DVDs, books and games is also planned.
“I am delighted to bring to the audience a website where they can read authentic news about their favorite stars and much-awaited films. Being a part of the website, I will be taking keen interest in it. I will also be blogging for Ticketplease.com and interacting with my fans”, said Ajay Devgn at the launch event.
