The rom-com was initially scheduled to release on February 11 but was pushed to April 29 to avoid clashing with Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon's 'Shehzada.' Later, Mani Ratnam's directorial 'PS-2' was announced for an April 29 release and 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani,' has avoided a clash again.
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' is written by Ishita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan and Sumit Roy.
On November 12, 2022 Johar had announced on Instagram, 'My heart is filled with excitement and gratitude…#RockyAurRaniKiPremKahani releasing in cinemas near you on 28th April, 2023!' In the statement, the filmmaker said 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' marks his return to his first home-cinemas, after a gap of seven years. "I had the absolute honour of working with not one, but many illustrious actors on the set of my seventh film," the director said.
