Will the delay in release of Mausam by a week prove to be a costly one for the producers and distributors?
Komal Nahta: The delay of Mausam is already proving to be a costly delay as the producers have had to sustain the publicity campaign for an additional week so that the excitement level of the public for the film does not decline. Since films are made on borrowed money, every delay also entails loss of interest on the borrowed funds.
Why is Tips lying low on the film production front?
Komal Nahta: It is not lying low. It is all geared up to start one film after another. Race 2 will be directed by Abbas-Mustan. There is a film to be directed by Siddharth Anand and another, by Mohit Suri. There are at least two/three more films in the pre-production stage. All these films will release in 2013.
