Manjrekar, the director, reveals that they are planning a festival release. He stated that Antim is a theatrical film. If cinemas open in Maharashtra by October, and they plan to release Antim, a film aimed at the Maharashtra market, on Diwali. The film stars Salman Khan in his element as a no-nonsense honest cop who clashes with Aayush Sharma's gangster, which can only be fully realized on the big screen.
Mulshi Pattern (2018), an adaptation of the original Marathi hit, found favor with single-screen audiences, and Manjrekar says Antim is also intended for the masses, and they are not planning to release it on OTT platforms at this time. By going to the movies, the middle-class and lower-middle-class audiences make films super hits, and this film represents them, so he knows it will do well in theatres.
Despite the fact that movie theatres have reopened in several states, the Maharashtra government appears to be wary of the move. Speaking of this, Manjrekar adds that it makes him feel silly when he sees crowded trains, buses, and marketplaces but no theatres open. There are so many people who rely on cinema for a living, not to mention the theatre employees. If this continues, single-screen cinemas will be forced to close
The film, which also stars Pragya Jaiswal, is the director's first with Salman Khan. Manjrekar praised the actors, saying that Salman has become the character and that Aayush has done an exceptional job, and that he is as excited about it as he was when he directed Vaastav in 1999.
