The makers released the trailer of the film, alternatively titled In the Shadows, on 17 August 2018 carefully juxtaposed slow, winding shots of Old's Delhi's meandering lanes with the rapid, jagged shots of Manoj Bajpayee's dishevelled state.

Chris spoke about his contribution to the film at its trailer launch: I'm proud to say this is my best work in over 20 years of editing! I'm super excited for the world to see Gali Guleiyan! Carefully crafting the performances of our ensemble cast, Gali Guleiyan gave me an opportunity to weave an intricate and unforgettable story that pushed me as an editor.”

Gali Guleiyan, written, directed and produced by debutant Dipesh Jain, is a combination of story as well as special effects. Chris said that the rhythms and pacing were so designed to give the audience an emotional ride, adding that the film is specifically geared towards watching at the theatre.

The film, produced by Shuchi Jain of Exstant Motion Pictures, will release in India and Worldwide on 7 September.
