Creative differences not behind 'Cabaret' delay: Director

Director Kaustav Narayan Niyogi has rubbished rumours that his upcoming film 'Cabaret' has been delayed due to creative differences.


The film is produced by filmmaker-actress Pooja Bhatt and stars Richa Chadda in the lead. Earlier, 'Cabaret' was scheduled to release on May 27 but has been pushed ahead.

Reportedly, the reason for delay was creative differences between the makers regarding the romantic drama.

"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 PTI.

'Cabaret' marks the directorial debut of Kaustav, who is an ad-filmmaker. There were reports that the film will now release on June 10 and clash with Amitabh Bachchan starrer 'TE3N'.

The director says he will announce a new date shortly and in the meanwhile wants the film to get the "right" publicity.

"Right now, we want to do the promotions in a robust manner. We haven't locked any dates yet but all the focus is to give the film right publicity. We want the film to have a dignified release and the biggest exposure. We will announce a date shortly," he said.

The film chronicles the relationship between a small town girl making it big in the glamour industry and a fallen journalist, played by 'Hunterrr' star Gulshan Devaiah.

Kaustav says the makers do not want to release the film in a "hurry".

"Personally, we all have so worked on the film that we don't want to release it in a hurry. It is not just a film about song and dance, it is much more than that and we want to ensure it has the maximum reach," he added.
