Mausam release relieves Shahid-Sonam
Now that Mausam has hit the screens and is getting some good reviews, Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor can heave a sigh of relief. The actors have been busy promoting the film all over the place, doing interviews for television, radio and the works. Thanks to the delay in the release, a concerned Sonam said in a recent interview, “We have run out of clothes to wear for the promotional activities.” Her co-star Shahid nodded in agreement, adding that delaying the relase of the film is not a publicity stunt. Writer Javed Akhtar seems to be mighty impressed by Mausam, as he posted a message on Twitter saying, “Saw Mausam last night. Hats off to Pankaj kapur who with his depth and dignity reminded me of Mehboob and Guru Dutt at the same time.” Shahid Kapoor replied saying, “thank u sir for your kind words… means so much as i am a huge fan. ” Now we are waiting for the reaction of the audience.

Is ‘Mausam’ release delay a publicity gimmick?
The release in delay of Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut film Mausam has surely generated a lot of curiosity. While the makers of the film stated that Indian Air Force had demaned a few changes within the film before it was released, industry insiders feels that it could all be a marketing gimmick. The producers also stated that they had taken the approval from the IAF at the scripting stage itself and making changes at the last moment was impossible. The buzz in the industry is that the film’s team’s defiant stand may have been a publicity stunt to generate curiosity for the film. And why not? In the recent past, films like Aarakshan and Ready ran into trouble right before its release. Controversies ensured a decent opening for both the films. Another theory that is doing the rounds is that the team needed time to put final touches to the movie and the postponement gave them ample time to do so. Whatever the truth is, we hope the film is worth the wait.
