There has been ongoing tension and discussions between the producers and the theatre owners regarding profit sharing in Mollywood. Earlier Producers apparently got 60% of the revenue. Theatre owners are now asking for the amount to be reduced to 50%. A Meeting was recently held in Kochi but they have not reached an amicable solution found.
With the demonetisation cash crunch Theatre owners are failing to attract crowds causing major losses to them.
Planned Christmas releases like Dulquer Salmaan’s Jomonte Suviseshangal, Jayasurya’s Fukri, Mohanlal’s Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol and Nivin Pauly’s Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela are facing problems.
