The release of Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor headlining love story Mausam is likely to be delayed in order to avoid a fratricidal clash with Ajay Devgan's cop thriller Singham.
Both the films are currently scheduled to hit screens on July 22.
A source close to the production team tells Sawfnews.com that Mausam producers have suddenly developed cold feet over the prospect of taking on Singham.
"Mausam was to clash with Singham, but the first rushes and promo of Singham have got rave reviews within the industry making Mausam makers question the wisdom of clashing with Rohit Shetty's action flick."
The Singham trailer has wowed one and all. It begins with Ajay Devgan making an imposing entry amidst the recital of shloka and features edge of the seat action.
"The action scenes leave one speechless and makes one go numb...the car explosion and Ajay Devgn's punch scene gives one goose bumps," a source who has seen the promo tells Sawfnews.com.
Mausam marks the directorial debut of Shahid's father Pankaj Kapur who has also penned the film's script. Shahid and Pankaj are invested in the film, both financially and emotionally.
Pankaj says he took three years to think and plan the script and 6 months to physically write it.
Filming began in June 2010 and wrapped up on May 25. Shahid dedicated the entire year to the film.
