It seems that difficulties surrounding the release of Sunil Grover’s film 'Coffee With D' will not end soon. After receiving threat calls from underworld, now the release of the film is postponed. However, makers stayed mum on the entire issue.

When the director of the movie was asked about the real cause of delaying the release, he intelligently tacked the question and said, “From the time of the release of the trailer, it hasn't been quite easy. We are being hopeful and taking each day as it comes. As of now, the release has been postponed.”        

Ever since the trailer of the flick was released, Producer Vinod Ramani, Director Vishal Mishra and actor Sunil were getting threat calls from gangster Chhota Shakeel asking them to cut the scenes that made fun of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. The team also approached the Delhi Police to look into the matter.

Apart from it, Sunil’s alleged rift with Kapil Sharma over promoting his flick on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ also made many headlines. However, the former made it clear that it was his call not to promote his movie on the show.

The censor board passed the flick with minimal cuts which was scheduled to release on January 6. Now, we can wait for the new release date to out soon.
