However, an alleged tussle among the co-producers threatens to push the release date ahead.

A source says, "The three producers have been fighting over the rights of the film. Besides, the issue of sharing the revenue generated is a major bone of contention among them. The film is supposed to release in India on March 6, but with the ongoing fight, it looks a little difficult."

The film has been jointly produced by two Indian companies, Cinemorphic and Sikhya Entertainment, and a French company called ASAP Films.

The source adds that the dispute has upset Tanovic, who recently took to social media to express anger. "However, he deleted the posts later," says the source.

The film, which is inspired by a real-life incident in Pakistan, was showcased at Toronto Film Festival last year and was well received.
