“We wanted to release the film in mid April but keeping the producers’ stand in mind we moved the release to May first week. We were hoping that issue will be resolved in the meeting on May 5 but when nothing came out of it we were left with no option but to release the film.
“If I don’t do it now I have to shut down my company,” he also said.
