Producers-multiplex owners strike may end
The Khiladi of Bollywood and the sizzling Bebo may finally pull crowds back to multiplexes.
According to trade body sources, representatives of the United Producers and Distributors Association and national multiplex chains are supposed to meet today, and are expected to arrive at a consensus on revenue-sharing for Hindi movies.
Meanwhile, some sources believe the stand-off between the concerned parties is being called off to ensure no delay in the release of the Akshay Kumar- and Kareena Kapoor-starrer Kambakkht Ishq, which was earlier slated for a May-end release. “Before any film releases, there is a minimum four-week promotion period. If the strike is called off now, then Akshay’s movie can be released in early June. The actor has had a series of flops and there is a lot of industry money riding on him. If you recall, the strike was announced on Friday, April 4, a day after Akshay’s movie 8x10 Tasveer was released,” says an industry observer.
Other sources in the industry share similar viewpoints on the deadlock between producers and multiplex owners. “There were no major blockbusters, mega-budget and big-star cast movies scheduled to release so far during the strike period, but now many of them are ready and waiting to be released. In such circumstances, the strike has to be called off,” says an industry source.
