It isn’t smooth sailing for the makers of Munna Bhai Sallu Bhai — Killers or Healers — a docu-drama on Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt. The makers wanted to reportedly release a 10 minute teaser in Mumbai, Delhi and Saharanpur (UP). But recent developments suggest that the teaser that was to release in Bandra’s Gaiety Galaxy, has been stalled by the Censor Board.
“In Delhi and Saharanpur, we did private screenings, so it went off smoothly. In Mumbai, we were planning to launch it at Gaiety, but for that, we need a censor certificate as it comes under public viewing,” says writer-director Muazzam Beg.
The makers were planning to launch the teaser on Friday but that seems impossible now as it is difficult to get the certificate on such a short notice. “We might just need to postpone the whole plan or find an alternative,” says Muazzam. He is also planning to put up the teaser online to gauge people’s response. “We will upload it on YouTube so that we can track public reaction to the film,” he says.
Muazzam plans to finish shooting by end of July and release it in December.
