Mausam was to premiere at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival before it was pulled out at the last moment.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) raised objections to certain scenes in the film which depict Shahid Kapoor flying the special F-16 fighter jets. Shahid plays an Air Force officer in the film while Sonam plays his love interest.

Mausam was all set to release this Friday (September 16, 2011), but will now release on the September 23, after the makers took time procuring a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Indian Air Force.

Apparently, the extended promotions for the film, which has been more than one and a half years in the making, are taking a toll on its actors.
