Malayalam Cinema's much awaited Christmas releases are in trouble, due to the sudden theatre strike in Kerala. Reportedly, the theatre federation has decided to shut down the theatres, to the much shock of the production banners and audiences.
The theatre owners federation decided to strike, as the Government decided not to seal the tickets, if the theatre owners failed to pay the money for the welfare fund in advance. The amount is approximately Rs 3 per each ticket.
The owners state that it is impossible to pay the money in advance, as the case still not closed and the court is yet to give a verdict.
Here is the list of Malayalam movies, which are about to postpone the releasing dates:
The highly anticipated Dulquer Salmaan starrer, which is directed by Martin Prakkat, was expected to hit the theatres by 17th or 18th of December. But as per the latest updates, the team has decided not to release the movie this weekend.
Two Countries, the Dileep-Mamtha Mohandas starrer directed by Shafi was about to be released on December 24th. But the crew is unsure about the release date, and the movie may get postponed to another date.
