    According to The Indian Express, a statement shared by K Vijayakumar, the President of FEUOK, says that “It is not being banned here. We cannot accept their terms and conditions. They are demanding unusual pay from single-screen theatres in Kerala (Do These Things When You Visit Kerala). That we cannot accept. We are not going to ban any films. But, we are not going to release Avatar 2 in Kerala. Theatre owners will suffer losses if we agree to hike the distributor’s share. We are expecting negotiations from their side."
