Rajkummar Rao and filmmaker Hansal Mehta's film 'Omerta' was expected to clash with Ishan Khatter and Malvika Mohanan's 'Beyond The Clouds' this Friday. But due to the clash between the makers and Central Board of Film Certification, audience will have to wait a little longer to watch Rao's film which has garnered great reviews in several international film festivals. 

The film was initially scheduled to release on April 20th but since the makers wanted to release the film without any cuts while CBFC was not happy with the use of the national anthem in the movie, Hansal Mehta and team patiently fought their battle until they got a clean chit to release their film on May 4 th.  So, in midst of IPL 2018 fever, bollywood fans will get to see clash of two totally different films, Rajkummar Rao's 'Omerta' and Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor's '102 Not Out' at the box-office on the same date. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news on Twitter as well. 


Omerta is the real life story of a British-born terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, the same militant who was behind the kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. The film not only showcases the horrors of the most bloody terror attacks in recent history including the 9/11 world trade centre attacks but also the brutal beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl. Omerta also brings back the award-winning jodi of Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao who have gave us films like Shahid, Aligarh and CityLights. This time Rao will be seen in a negative role for the first time ever. "My first as an anti-hero and exhausting as an actor. To feel the hate towards another human-being without any remorse can take quite a toll. It took me a while to shed this character," Rajkummar earlier said in a press release.
