The trailer is replete with visuals of the grimy underbelly of Indian and Bangladeshi cities, along with high-octane action.

Prior to the release of the trailer, Hemsworth shared a video message via Netflix India's Twitter account. He said his time while filming the film in India was unforgettable but owing to the coronavirus pandemic, he was unable to return in order to promote the film in the country.
