UK riots disrupt Mausam's music launch

UK riots disrupt Mausam's music launch

Although Shahid Kapoor is safe in London, the riots have delayed the music launch of his next venture Mausam, also featuring Sonam Kapoor. The event was suppose to take place in Hyde Park in central London.

A source told Mid Day: "August 15 was decided as the date, since it's India's
Independence Day. The NRI population as well as Bollywood fans would have come to support the film. Shahid and Sonam were to perform live at the function."

It was Shahid's idea as he is already shooting in London with Priyanka Chopra. "Shahid is already in the UK shooting for Kunal Kohli's next film. So, it would have been easier for him to ensure that all the coordination for Mausam's music release was in place," added the source.

However, the riots played a spoilsport and delayed the launch. Now, the event will be held post Independence Day. "Shahid is returning to the country on August 16. So he'll meet the producers and figure out an alternate date and place to launch the soundtrack in India," the source told the tabloid.

The film is scheduled for a September 16 release.
