The film was earlier expected to be released on July 14, but was postponed as the makers did not want it to clash with Jagga Jasoos, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.
In an interaction with Deccan Chronicle filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia was quoted saying as, "There is no point in trying to get into the current clutter of releases".
Lakhia confirms the development, saying, "We collectively chose to postpone the film so that it can get enough screens and a worthy run at the box-office". Apoorva Lakhia reasoned that there are too many releases during that period. "If we came on August 18 we would have Shah Rukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal and Akshay Kumar's Toilet Ek Prem Katha behind us", Lakhia wrote. Competing with these two films, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Toilet - Ek Prem Katha, is not only tough but nearly impossible, said the source.
