The Shoojit Sircar film which is being produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar was earlier slated to hit the big screens on October 2, 2020.

The production company of the film - Rising Sun Films - made an official announcement in regard through Twitter.

"On March 13th 1940, #SardarUdham singlehandedly assassinated Michael O' Dwyer in London to honour the lives lost at the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. His story deserves justice onscreen too.
