Why theatre owners meeting got cancelled

Why theatre owners meeting got cancelled? Here is an official statement from TFPC's side:

"In the incessant phase of the strike that is happening in Kollywood, where the release of new movies has been stalled, it looks like favourable – sorry – Truthful situation is all showing up now. In view of the demands and norms placed by Tamil Film Producers Council over the theatres and DSPs happening on full swing, Theatre Owners Association had decided together for a meeting to show their substantial unity in posing back some strong resentment.

The meeting was supposed to happen this evening around 5 p.m. But to everyone’s shock and of course, a Twist in tale, the meeting got cancelled. The reasons remained under wraps and we tried reaching a close source that revealed the fact. It seems that many theatres based area wise started visiting Tamil Film Producers Council to bring an amicable situation. Well, this didn’t get well with the office bearers of Theatres Owners Association in Tamil Nadu, which gave no option but to cancel out the meeting. It is worth mentioning that this is not about dispelling unity, but some theatre owners understanding the reality.

It is noteworthy that producers of many movies have deliberately got more platforms to get their movies released, which is predominantly happening with Digital Platforms. But the situation turns out to be bleaker for the Theatres as their business would be abruptly dropped down the line. This has apparently made some of them recognize the need of hour as TFPC is nowhere settling down with the adverse situation."
