New Delhi: Actress Richa Chadha's Cabaret has had to twice rebook its box office dates - May 27 initially and then June 10 - and on Tuesday, co-producer Pooja Bhatt revealed why the film has still not seen light of day. Cabaret has been rescheduled twice because of copyright violation, tweeted 44-year-old Ms Bhatt.

Cabaret does not have a final release date yet. In May, director Kaustav Narayan Niyogi dismissed rumours that the film was delayed due to creative differences.

"There are no creative differences at all. This is all rubbish. We have completed the film and it has turned out nicely. Reasons behind the delay are not any 'differences' whatsoever," Kaustav told news agency PTI.

Mr Niyogi had also said that they did not want to release Cabaret "in a hurry."

Cabaret, touted as Richa Chadha's most glamorous role so far, is a dance movie that is reportedly loosely based on the life and times of Helen. It also stars Gulshan Devaiah and cricketer S Sreesanth.

Pooja Bhatt, daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and first wife Kiran, made her acting debut in Bollywood with Daddy in 1989. She is the star of films like Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Sadak, Zakhm and Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee. She was last seen in 2001's Everybody Says I'm Fine!.

In 2004, Ms Bhatt directed her first film, Paap. She has made films like Holiday, Dhokha and Jism 2.
