Starring Fatima Sana Shaikh alongside Diljit Dosanjh and Manoj Bajpayee, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is one of the first film to release in cinemas. In an exclusive interview to mid-day, the film's director Abhishek Sharma said that he was optimistic that people will watch his film in cinemas. "As far as I understand the mood of the country, people have been stuck at home for far too long and want entertainment. So, I hope it will translate into film business," he stated, adding that cinemas are stringently following the standard operating procedures (SOPs). "The first set of audiences will see how the environment is completely safe, and that, in turn, will boost public morale. I am positive our film will grow through word of mouth."

Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari tells the story of a wedding detective agency which runs background checks on prospective grooms. It gets dramatic when the worlds of Suraj played by Diljit and Mangal played by Manoj collide. Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari also features seasoned actors such as Annu Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa, Seema Pahwa, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Nehha Pendse, Manuj Sharma, Neeraj Sood, Abhishek Banerjee, Vijay Raaz, Karishma Tanna, Vanshikha Sharma amongst others.
