The film was scheduled to be released on 22 May 2020,[9] but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[10]

On 29 June 2020, Disney+ Hotstar conducted virtual press conference where Akshay Kumar announced that the film will release on Disney+ Hotstar exclusively as part of Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex initiative which was a result of theatre shut down due to COVID-19 pandemic.[11][2]
