Cinema Strike; Pulimurugan to be revoked from theatres
As per latest reports, as the part of cinema strike, Kerala Film Producers Association and Film Distributors Association jointly decided to revoke all Malayalam movies including Pulimurugan and Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan from A class theatres. Recently, Kerala Film Exhibitors Federation has demanded a 50-50 shares in the theatrical collections of upcoming movies, but both the producers association and the distributors association have not agreed with this. Thus, the Exhibitors Federation hesitated to release new Malayalam movies. This decision will affect the release of Malayalam movies, including Mohanlal’s Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol, Dulquer Salmaan’s Jomonte Suvisheshangal, Prithviraj’s Ezra and Jayasurya’s Fukri which are scheduled to hit the Kerala box office this Christmas season. However, this cinema strike would not affect the release of other language movies.
