As per reports, the film is all set to release on Amazon Prime Video this year. The movie starring Vicky Kaushal is expected to get its release on the OTT platform on October 16.
A source has revealed to Pinkvilla, “Sardar Udham Singh will premiere directly on Amazon Prime Video during the Dussehra weekend. The tentative release date at the moment is October 16 and the team is supremely excited to present their film to the audience. It was meant for a theatrical viewing; however, an unprecedented situation has resulted in a direct to OTT premiere”.
The shoot of the film Sardar Udham Singh was wrapped up in December 2019, the team has taken a long time on the post-production, as it has been said that it is a big-scale biopic made on a massive budget. The source has also added, “In fact, Shoojit and co. had sold Gulabo Sitabo to Amazon in the early days of pandemic only because they could hold on to Sardar Udham Singh for a theatrical release. It has been 15 months since then, and the virus is still hovering around the globe. The exhibition section too is far off from revival and given the kind of money involved in the film, the makers thought, it’s best to arrive in the digital world”.

The movie was initially scheduled to be released on 2nd October 2020. But due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the film has got rescheduled for January 2021 release. But later on, the film was again got postponed.
