It’s as if destiny wanted the film to arrive on this particular day,” said a source close to the project to the portal. However, considering the situation's unpredictability, the makers are also eyeing August 15 as their probable date. "That’s an option for an extreme scenario, but they are optimistic that things would be back to normal by summer end. A wait and watch scenario is being adopted for now, with a team keeping an eye on the on-ground scenario”, added the source further.
