Ever since the music launch of the film GST – Galti Sirf Tumhari, it has been mired in controversies leaving the producers to defer its release from its scheduled date of 24 November. The producers have attributed it to the lackadaisical attitude of the CBFC that delayed its release, which will now release on 8 December. GST is not the only victim of this high-handedness of the board as we are seeing it happening with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ and comedy king Kapil Sharma’s ‘Firangi’, though industry sources reveal there are several other films entangled with the Board. Sarika S Sanjot, the bewildered producer of ‘GST’ – ‘Galti Sirf Tumhari which saw its release date pushed back thrice earlier mentions, “These last moment delays have resulted in huge losses to me. My film’s title ‘GST’ has nothing to do with any political ideology or any financial policy issues. It is purely a family entertainer-thriller.
We hope that the Board would eliminate its interference and obstruction to our film which has already cost us huge losses.”The debutante woman producer is keeping her fingers crossed and hopes to release iton 8 December itself unlike the other delayed films which are being held up due to other reasons. “I repeat that GST – the film does not have anything to do with policy issues, instead it is a revenge drama-entertainer carrying an important message for the youth,” Sarika emphasized. Naghma Khan of SHAAZ Media Entertainment is the PR and Marketing head of GST – Galti Sirf Tumhari which is being released by Big Curtains Media.
