Kochi: After Dulquer Salman, The Film Exhibitors United Organisation of Kerala (FEUOK), took action against Antony Perumbavoor and Dileep for releasing their movies continuously on OTT. The theatre owners say such people should be banned.
The organisation alleges that Dulquer had released his new film Salute on OTT even after promising a theatrical release. This led FEUOK’s executive committee to ban Dulquer. The action against Dileep, the lifetime chairman of the organisation, and Antony Perumbavoor, the vice-chairman of the organisation, has been taken before discussing the issue in the General Body that is to be held on 31 March.
The decision to discuss the issue with the General Body was taken after the outcry in the organisation that why the two were not banned. Also, a move is being made to amend the constitution of the organisation to change Dileep and Antony Perumbavoor from the lifetime chairman and vice-chairman positions.
Meanwhile, Antony Perumbavoor came out against FEUOK. He said that he is not currently a member of the organisation and that those preparing to expel him should explain the mistake he committed. Antony Perumbavoor and FEUOK had earlier had a major dispute over the release of the film 'Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea'. He resigned from the organisation following this.
