Rajkummar Rao-starrer Omertà that was scheduled to release today (April 20) will now release on May 4. The makers kept everyone guessing but finally disclosed the reason for shifting the release date. 

Director Hansal Mehta says, “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 4 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.”

Omertà is the horrifying true story of one of the most dreaded terrorists of our times. Shot in real locations across London and India, the film exposes the present danger of Pakistan-sponsored terror. 

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival 2017 followed by the Busan International Film Festival and Mumbai Film Festival 2017. It is being presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media.
