Mausam postponed to September 23

All the speculations regarding Mausam's release getting delayed were put to rest by Shahid Kapoor today at a press conference held in Mumbai. The much awaited Shahid-Sonam starrer which was scheduled to release this week on September 16 has been pushed by a week to September 23.

Shahid who plays the lead in Mausam said, "The release date has been shifted to September 23. We needed a NOC from IAF and Censor Certificate, we got a 'U' certificate and then the board wanted to see the film once again. This consumed a lot of time delaying the release date. We have made the required changes in the particular 30 seconds scene". The actor further added, "It was very important to announce this. Our team believes in our film and we feel that it is as authentic as it could be, we want to bring the best for our audiences."

Shahid Kapoor also added, "I have seen the film yesterday and am really happy with it, I am excited and eagerly awaiting its release. Now we will have more time to promote the film and since there are no major releases in the next two weeks, Mausam will not face any problems."

Mausam was facing some problem in obtaining the No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Indian Air Force. The makers of Mausam had received a conditional NOC from the IAF. A special screening for the top IAF officers and heads was arranged in Delhi today. The IAF requested for a minor correction in a particular aerial action sequence. The scene in question is only 30 seconds long and needed computer graphic changes.

Speaking on this director Pankaj Kapur said, "IAF has been amazingly supportive, they have co-operated with us since the past 1 year. The IAF didn't ask us to remove anything, they only asked for minor changes, these were computer graphic changes to be made in an action sequence in the film which we have incorporated. It is our duty to make sure that all the representation is done authentically and in accordance with IAF. I thank them, they have been very supportive. Since the scene is a computer graphic scene it will take some time to make the changes. As our overseas prints would not be ready in time we decided to shift the release date by a week."

On being asked if the changes in the fight sequence indicates the alteration of content in anyway, Pankaj was quick to respond as he mentioned, "The content of the film in terms of the fight sequence has not changed, the story telling is the same, only tiny details are slightly altered as per the IAF's requirements".

Sonam Kapoor, who plays the lead opposite Shahid stated, "We all have worked hard and I think we can promote it more for a week. Mausam will definitely be enjoyed by all."

The Censor Board for Film Certification (CBFC) which had earlier cleared the film and given it a U certificate also wanted to review the film once again. Following which the film received a 'U' certificate last night.

The premiere of Mausam which was supposed to take place at the Toronto International Film Festival today also got cancelled. Ram Mirchandani from Eros told the media that they will now be having two premieres for Mausam, one in London and the other in Mumbai.
