Mollywood has witnessed several strikes during recent times, including last year end’s theatre strike, which affected the releasing schedules so badly. Now there is another strike all set to happen as the industry is continuing with the issue over profit sharing with some of the multiplexes.
In fact, the issue has been there for some time now and a few of the distributors with new releases had defied the call to stay away from the multiplexes, recently.
But the producers and distributors have reportedly decided not to give the forthcoming Eid releases to some of the multiplexes, mainly in Kochi, as they haven’t agreed for the profit sharing ratio put forward by the distributors.
If the issue is not solved soon, the distributors will not give their forthcoming releases to those multiplexes and this means, yet another crisis for Mollywood.
