On Tuesday, it was informed by face producer Anand Pandit that the film would no longer be released on 9 April due to the surge in COVID-19 cases. Rumi Jaffrey directs the face. It is a mystery-thriller film, in which many of the best actors will appear in the lead roles along with Amitabh and Imran. The trailer of the film received a good response on social media.
The well-being of our very own audience is of utmost importance to us.
We are extremely humbled by the love and support that we have received this far. See you in the cinemas soon.
Until then, stay safe!
