“We knew it will happen. Finally, it’s out,” Omung said.
In a statement, Omung stated: “The team and I were convinced of what we have made. It’s a piece of cinema and not propaganda and now the Censor Board has validated what we have been saying all along.
“Very thankful and excited for the April 11. I hope the audiences enjoy this film, which for me, has been my toughest film till date,” he added.
Encouraged by the clearance of the film, producer Sandip Ssingh, said in a statement, “We are very happy that we got the ‘U’ certificate from the Censor Board, and finally the film will be releasing on April 11. We are also very relieved that the Supreme Court has rejected the plea. It is clear now from everywhere. I hope no political party across India has any problem, because the Election Commission, the CBFC, and all the courts have cleared all the pleas, and our film is ready for release. We are grateful to each and everyone who has prayed for us.”
The co-producer of the film Anand Pandit said, “Finally freedom of expression has been upheld. Justice has been served. Our final hurdle has also been crossed. Now I just want audiences to come to theaters and sit back and enjoy the story of one of India’s most inspiring leaders. Jai Hind.”
The film was earlier scheduled to release on April 5 but later postponed for one week. With Vivek Anand Oberoi in the titular role, the film stars Boman Irani, Barkha Bisht, Darshan Kumar, Zarina Wahab, Manoj Joshi, and others.
