Kochi: Film Exhibitors United Organisation of Kerala (FEUOK) has announced that theatres in Kerala will be closed down on Wednesday and Thursday (June 7,8) against the decision to stream Jude Anthony's film ‘2018’ on an OTT platform. FEUOK, the association representing theatre owners in the state, alleged the filmmakers violated the agreement that an OTT release will happen only 42 days after the theatre screening.

'2018' is set to release on OTT via Sony Live on June 7, marking its entry into the platform on the 33rd day after its theatrical release.
