In a press conference held yesterday, Shahid Kapoor 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."
However, Mausam had received a conditional NOC from the officers of IAF, who once again watched the movie at a special screening arranged in Delhi yesterday. After the screening, 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, which has been done immediately, confirms director Pankaj Kapoor.
