Though the Indian Air Force has held back the no objection
certificate to Pankaj Kapoor's Mausam, the censor board
has decided to give it a clearance and a go ahead.
The Air Force had earlier demanded a few changes in a fight
sequence in Mausam. However, the Central Board of Film
Certification (CBFC) has decided to give a 'go ahead' to the film,
ignoring the IAF's demands. Mausam will be issued a censor
certificate on September 13.
Speaking to a leading newspaper, the chief executive officer of
the censor board, Ms Pankaj Thakur said, "The CBFC has nothing to
do with the so-called NOC. We're given to understand that the Air
Force wants certain cuts in the film as per an MOU signed between
the producer and the Air Force. The CBFC was not a party to any
Mausam, starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in the
lead roles will hit the theatre on September 16.
