“The makers were all set for a theatrical release on May 28, but in current times, it’s unlikely for any film to arrive in the cinema halls at least till the month of July. The cases are on the rise every day and are showing no signs of slowing down. After multiple rounds of internal discussions, Bell Bottom team has initiated the conversation with the digital giant, Disney+ Hotstar for a digital premiere,” a source close to the development had earlier told Pinkvilla.
