Earlier, during a media interaction, the director had said that the team had planned for a theatrical release but later changed their opinion due to the current situation (COVID-19 lockdown). He was quoted as saying, "Yes, we have decided to release the film on an OTT platform. We had planned for a theatrical release and tried to hold out for as long as we could but with no clarity on when theatres will reopen, we felt an OTT release is the best way forward. I hope the audience will connect with it and make it a success."
Let us tell you that the film was earlier scheduled for a theatrical release on April 2, 2020. Nishabdham's release was later postponed owing to the sudden COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown.
