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 such agreement."
Mausam, starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles will hit the theatre on September 16.
