Mausam to now release on 23 September

MUMBAI: The release of Eros International and Vistaar Religare‘s Mausam has been postponed for a 23 September release. The film was to release this Friday.

Eros International COO Ram Mirchandani said, "The release of Mausam has indeed been delayed. It happened because we couldn‘t get the prints that were meant for the overseas circuit in time. Hence we thought it better to defer the release by a week."

Explaining the reason in detail, Pankaj Kapur stated, "Going by reports that an entire 30-second sequence has to be deleted, let me clearly say that only a minor correction had to be made in that particular sequence as it was going against the norms of the IAF keeping the National security in mind.

Since it was a CG generated sequence, it took us time to carry out the correction. And after we got the sequence right, the Censor Board wanted to again review the film. Just yesterday, the Board cleared the film and gave an ‘U‘ certificate."

Intervening, Shahid Kapoor added, "We could have released the film in India, but since we wanted the film to have a worldwide release and because we couldn‘t secure the overseas prints, we deferred the release of the film by a week.

This gives us one more week for the promotion of the film both domestically and internationally. And one more thing that we hope will go in our favour is that in the next two weeks there would be no film worth the mention to give Mausam a fight."

As is already known, Mausam was to have its world premiere at the recently concluded Toronto Film Festival. But since the makers couldn‘t get the Censor Board certificate, the film was pulled out from the lineup.
