Marketing and Release
On March 4, 2018, producer Ekta Kapoor revealed the first two posters of the film on Twitter, each depicting the two leads - a cross-eyed Ranaut and Rao holding up his middle fingers to his eyes; Kapoor hinted at the theme of mental instability by captioning, "It's time to bring out the crazy in you... Because Sanity is overrated!"
On March 5, Balaji Motion Pictures released two more first look posters, depicting both lead characters at crime scenes. The following day, March 6, another two posters for the film were released, with leads Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut posing in "quirky" and dangerous positions- a knife-wielding Ranaut in a water-fulled bathtub surrounded by electronic gadgets at its edge, and Rao holding a butcher knife and cutting an apple, with blood seeping from his hand.
On 11 October 2018, the producers released a new poster, a composite of the original two posters of a cross-eyed Ranaut and Rao holding up his middle fingers, to reveal the film's release date.
