Kapil Sharma starrer ‘Firangi’ which was earlier slated to release this Friday (November 24) has been postponed. According to sources, the film is yet to be certified from the CBFC.
Says the film’s director Rajiev Dhingra, “We were hoping to get our censor certificate early this week. Now we’re told the censor certificate will be given to us on November 23, a day before our release date. How can we release the film under such uncertainty? My friend Kapil Sharma, my Mumbai distributor Anil Thadani and I have decided not to release this Friday.”
Though a new release date is yet to be decided the film is likely to be now released on December 1, the day Padmavati was to open.
The film which was set to release on November 10 initially, later got pushed to November 24, and now, we are expecting an announcement later this week that the makers have had to push the dates yet again.
Firangi will be Kapil’s second film after Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. He was launched by director duo Abbas-Mustan of the Baazigar fame.
Directed by Rajiev Dhingra, Firangi also stars Monica Gill and Ishita Dutta.
