In the statement, the company’s MD Jayantilal Gada refuses OTT release rumours and claimed that all three films will release only in theatres since the “magnum opus films” were “made for big-screen experience” only.

Alia Bhatt will be playing the role of Sita, while Ajay Devgan will make an extended cameo appearance. Set in 1920, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries choose to go into oblivion before they began the fight for their country.
