However, a Congress activist filed a petition seeking a ban on the release of the movie which was initially set to hit the silver screens on April 5 and later postponed to April 11.
In its last month order, the EC had banned the screening of the movie during the poll period, saying any such movie that subserves purpose of any political individual or entity should not be displayed in the electronic media.
However, the Election Commission’s order had come a day before the film was to be released.
Producer Sandip Ssingh said he hopes the movie will have a smooth run in the theatres.
“As a responsible citizen, we respect the law of the country. After a lot of discussions and keeping the curiosity and excitement about the film in mind we have decided to release the film immediately after the Lok Sabha election results,” Singh said in a statement.
“We are now releasing our film on 24th May 2019. This is the first time a film will be promoted for only four days. I hope now nobody has any problem with the film and we are hoping for the smooth release this time,” he added.
