Avatar: The Way of Water Is Banned In 400 Theaters In Kerala Due To Distributors Demanding An Excessive Amount Of Money

According to the most recent information that has surfaced, the state of Kerala has decided to prohibit the movie Avatar: The Way of Water. The decision was made by FEUOK (Film Exhibitors United Organization of Kerala) due to the fact that distributors were asking a share of 60% of the total net profits of the cinema industry in the first week after the film’s release. This is far too much considering that exhibitors often give fifty percent of the share. On the other hand, for Avatar 2, they only offered 55% of the share, whereas the distributors insisted on getting 60%.
