Horror movies have a separate fan base. For some reason, the genre attracts one and all and makes for a good watch when unsure of what to see. However, off late, films in the genre are not able to meet the expectation of the audience.
This is where Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon’s horror comedy film ‘Bhediya’ comes into play. Fans are excited about the movie and have set high expectations from the film.
The makers had announced that the film would hit the theatres on April 14 next year.
However, recent information suggests that now the film will release at the end of the next year. The film is directed by Amar Kaushik.
Heavy visual effects led to the delay
According to Pinkvilla’s report, the release of ‘Bhediya’ has been postponed due to the non-completion of the film’s work on time. It has been claimed that the film will release by the end of next year.
It is said that the project is getting delayed due to the heavy visual effects of the film.
The source said that a lot of VFX has been used in this film, in order for the audience to have a different experience.
Sources reveal the film will hit theatres in October-December next year
The source said that the visual effects are taking more than the stipulated time to complete. Hence the release of the film has been pushed forward by 6 months.
The source added, “It’s a new genre, and the team is looking to create a big-screen experience with not just the never seen before visuals, but also some unique sound effects meant for the cinema halls. The film will now be released in the last quarter of 2022 between the October to December window.”

Varun and Kriti have earlier worked together in Rohit Shetty’s film ‘Dilwale’.
Varun had liked Amar Kaushik’s film ‘Stree’ and was excited to do a similar film. Varun will play the role of a demon in ‘Bhediya’.
Kriti and Varun’s upcoming projects
Kriti has received a lot of appreciation for her recent film ‘Mimi’. She played a surrogate mother in the film.
Apart from this, Sanon will be seen in Akshay Kumar’s much-awaited film ‘Bachchan Pandey’.
