Bhansali Productions also confirmed the development via Twitter.

Inshallah was reportedly going to share the same release date as the Rohit Shetty-directed Sooryavanshi, resulting in one of the biggest box office clashes of 2020. The cop high octane action-drama stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. Like other films from Rohit's cop universe, this too features a fierce and flamboyant hero at the film's centre, who is fuelled by the dictum "a bullet for a bullet."
