Is Kabir Khan’s Phantom, the big espionage thriller scheduled to be released on August 28 going to miss its release date?
The buzz is that director Kabir Khan immersed in the marketing and publicity of his big Eid release Bajrangi Bhaijaan has not been able to devote as much time to the post-production work of Phantom as he would have liked to.
According to sources in the censor board the film has already missed two appointments for certification. “They reserved a time for the screening of Phantom twice but didn’t show up. They are not ready with the film as yet,” says a source from the censor board.
However, director Kabir Khan shoots down all delay rumours. “Phantom is locked in for August 28. Everything is under control.” Phantom is crucial for Saif Ali Khan’s career as he hasn’t had a success in recent times.
