But later the makers pushed the date to April. Karan posted a long caption back then, “After 7 years, it’s time for me to return to my first home – the cinemas. I had the absolute honour of working with not one, but many illustrious actors on the set of my film. The familial nostalgic feeling of an ensemble cast, creating music that captivates the hearts and a story that runs deep to the roots of our family traditions.” The film is all set to hit the theatres on July 28, 2023.
