According to Free Press Journal, the film, initially scheduled for release on June 7 and then postponed to June 14, will now premiere on June 21, 2024. The movie faced delays due to legal challenges stemming from petitions alleging Quran distortion and derogatory content towards Islam, women and the Muslim community. 

A bench comprising Justices BP Colabawalla and Firdosh Pooniwalla reviewed the film and concluded that they found nothing objectionable in it that could incite violence or be disrespectful to the Quran or the Muslim community.
