Director Abhishek Sharma had stated in an interview that he had all the time been pushing for a theatrical launch for the movie. “I’ve never been okay with a digital release, my thoughts on this are well known. For me, the cinema belongs to the theatre. I’m really thankful to the production house for giving me that push for theatre, even in these times and Inshallah we’ll be the first film to come out in theatres,” he instructed Times Now.

He stated that the movies which were launched on streaming throughout the pandemic have suffered. Wondering why the makers couldn’t have waited longer, he added, “I am sorry to use the word, but those films are dying, it’s death. I wouldn’t take names but there are so many films which are on OTT right now and I can see some coming as well, which are promising, I don’t know why they couldn’t wait. For me, cinema belongs to theatres. I’m a theatre guy, I feel cinema belongs to movie theatres and not to OTT. I think that’s the death of the cinema…”

In the previous few months, a number of high-profile movies corresponding to Dil Bechara, Sadak 2, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl and Gulabo Sitabo have been launched on-line, with many further releases lined up.
