Last week, there was an announcement made by Suriya's 2D Entertainment that his wife Jyothika's Ponmagal Vandhaal directed by debutant JJ Frederick will be released directly on Amazon Prime and will not be released in theatres.

Later, Tamil Nadu theatre owners association and the association's general secretary Panneerselvam has released a new video on the arrangement to not release any of Suriya’s movies in theatres.

In the video, Panneerselvam has said that films made for theatres must not release in any other OTT platforms before it hits the big screens. He also condemned Suriya's 2D entertainment for releasing Ponmagal Vandhaal directly on Amazon Prime. 

Panneerselvam has said that the producer hasn't responded to their demand of not releasing in the OTT platform and hence future movies from 2D Entertainment and also Suriya's films will not be screened in theatres. 

This announcement also mentioned that theatre owners have decided to boycott all Suriya's movies like Soorarai Pottru as well as movies from Dream Warrior Pictures.
