Rajkummar Rao’s Omerta Pushed To May 4th

Hansal Mehta’s Omerta starring Rajkummar Rao which was supposed to release this Friday has been postponed.


Omerta which is based on the life of terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh is now all set to release on May 4th.


It looks like the audiences will have to wait longer to watch the film.


The film, which was earlier clashing with Abhay Deol and Patralekhaa’s Nanu Ki Janu and Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds will now clash with Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor starrer 102 Not Out.


Hansal Mehta said:

“We knew that it wouldn’t be a cake walk with the Censor Board given that the film has a fair bit of violence and strong language. We didn’t want cuts that would take away the essence of the film, so we had to wait. The Censor Board Chief and members of the revising committee understood how certain scenes could not be removed since they are essential for audiences to understand how a terrorist’s mind works. Hence the wait and that’s why a decision has been taken to release Omertà on May 4.”


Producer Nahid Khan added:

“The team was waiting for CBFC’s clearance for the film. We’re happy to announce May 4th as the release date for Omertà. We know audiences are eagerly awaiting the film’s release. It’s just a small change of two weeks. We don’t mind the delay as long as we have managed to keep the essence of the film intact.”


Well, let’s hope that the movie isn’t postponed any further.


Presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media, Produced by Nahid Khan and directed by Hansal Mehta, Omertà starring Rajkummar Rao releases on May 4th, 2018.
