Dileep is threatening Exhibitors Federation members : Liberty Basheer

There seems to be no end to the troubles between the various cinema associations even after the strike has been called off. Exhibitors Federation president Liberty Basheer has now alleged that actor Dileep is threatening the federation members to join the new union. He has written a letter to the Cheif Minister for a settlement over the issue.

Liberty Basheer’s Liberty complex in Thalassery, Federation general secretary Shaju Augustine Akkara’s Akkara Cinemas in Chalakudy, Vice president Santhosh’s Vallakalil cine complex in Mavelikara and 25 other thetares in the State have not obtained the new movies. Movies have not been distributed to Federation members in places like Edappally, Kazhakootam, Tripunithura, Parappanangadi and Manchery.

A new federation was formed with Dileep as the president with many members from the Exhibitors Federation moving to the new union. A meeting has been arranged with Minister AK Balan on 25th where further matters will be decided.

Liberty Basheer has also alleged that the new union with the backing of the producers and distributors association, is not giving new releases to theaters owners who were part of the strike.

However, the producers and distributors have maintained that they have not enforced any kind of blockade. Producers association president G Suresh Kumar has said that the producers and distributors will jointly decide on the theatres where Malayalam movies will be released.

Dulquer Salmaan’s Jomonte Suvisheshangal directed by Sathyan Anthikad will be the first to hit screens on January 19. Mohanlal’s Munthirivallikalal Thalirkkumbol will release the next day on January 20.
