Yesterday, a tabloid carried a story alleging that Madhur Bhandarkar had postponed the release of his film Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji from January 26 to January 28 at the insistence of Aamir Khan and UTV. However, the National Award winning filmmaker denies the story as completely baseless and is himself baffled as to how such a story was put up without any verification.
Says Madhur, "Yes it is true that we had decided to prepone the release Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji to January 26 since it's a National holiday. However, there have been some delays with respect to the Censor certification of the film and hence we decided to stick to our original release date which is January 28. I wish to clarify that I have not received any call from either Aamir Khan or Ronnie Screwvala (UTV) asking me to push the film ahead. It's a decision taken entirely by me and my team. Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is now releasing worldwide on January 28 and that is final."
