This Is How Distributors Are Tortured By Top Producer-Exhibitors!

Movie distributors are the one whose money is at stake for any big budget film.

Actors and directors take home high salaries and the producers make sure to be in safe territory prior to the release by making NRA deals with the distributors.

It is the distributor who needs to pool money through local distributors and exhibitors for every big release. However, distributors cannot take all the profits that a movie makes.

He gets only a small chunk of profits despite the paltry 10% success rate of Telugu cinema business.

Top producers owning or leasing most of the theaters in big cities and towns is another headache for distributors.

These producers don’t pay the distributor’s share on time and keep them waiting for several months and for years in a few cases.

Few distributors are yet to recover their theatrical share for Sarileru Neekevvaru and Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. There are a few pending payments for Majili movie that was released a year ago.

Distributors will get their share from local exhibitors, but these producers turned exhibitors will not pay their dues on time and the poor distributor has to bear the interest on finances.

They cannot dare to confront these ‘bada’ producers as they are the ones who run the show in Tollywood.
