Zomato is reportedly in discussions with Paytm to acquire its movie and event (Paytm Insider) ticket booking business. This potential acquisition aligns with Zomato's strategy to diversify its offerings and create a broader ecosystem beyond food delivery. Paytm, on the other hand, has been focusing on its core fintech services, and divesting its ticketing business could streamline its operations and allow it to concentrate on financial services and payments.

Zomato can soon start Movies & Event Tickets Booking as Paytm plans to Sell this segment!

The ticketing business of Paytm has been significant, handling bookings for movies, sports, music, and comedy events. It has partnered with major cinema chains and sports teams, establishing a substantial presence in the Indian entertainment market. Despite this, the ticketing service has been a smaller revenue stream for Paytm compared to its primary business areas​.

Paytm Movies & Events currently offers buy 1 get 1 free, flat discounts, and more deals via credit cards, Paytm Coupons, and others. Thus, Zomato is expected to have fine promotional offers during the launch period of this service to take on BookMyShow, Amazon Pay, PVR INOX, and others.

This move could benefit Zomato by leveraging Paytm's established infrastructure in the ticketing space, thereby expanding its user base and increasing user engagement on its platform. The deal would also complement Zomato's acquisition of Blinkit, enhancing its portfolio and services offered to customers​.

Looks like Paytm is passing the popcorn to Zomato – who knew food delivery came with a side of movie tickets?

Paytm is always trash when it comes to offers in movie tickets. I never bought any ticket from it and BMS has been my love forever. 
Paytm Movies' fate was sealed the first day it was launched.
