Sharing the posters, he wrote, “Action, Comedy, Romance, Drama L-O-A-D-I-N-G this Holi! #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey in cinemas on March 18,2022.”

The film is written by Nischay Kuttanda and directed by Farhad Samji. Earlier, it was scheduled to release on Christmas, 2020 but was postponed due to coronavirus pandemic.
After wrapping up the Jaisalmer schedule, Kriti had shared a picture with Akshay from the sets and written, “One of the bestest, most fun and memorable schedules I have had so far.. Time just flew and we ended up making a film in between the echoing laughters, gaming sessions and neverending lunches and dinners as we all became one family! It was surely the saddest Goodbye from the beautiful Suryagarh Palace.. but we shall meet again soon! Can’t wait to see you guys in Cinemas! @nadiadwalagrandson.”
As soon as he dropped the post, his fans flooded the comment section with appreciating comments. One of the fans wrote, “Amazing” while the others dropped fire, lovestruck and heart emoticons.
Earlier, the film was scheduled to hit the theatres on March 4, 2022. However, now makers have pushed the date forward, and the reason behind this is yet unknown.
The film has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced. Speaking to media, Kriti Sanon revealed that the script of the film is “unique” and “very entertaining”. She further talked about her experience working with Akshay Kumar. She said, “He’s constantly having fun, and likes people to also have fun. We would play games like Tambola and all, and even the people who were serving food there, the people from the hotel would also join in. He’s like a people’s person. He likes involving everyone who’s there, whether it’s a costume person, makeup person or anyone on sets. He brings people together and that’s amazing.”
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Bachchan Pandey also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arshad Warsi and Prateik Babbar in pivotal roles.
