The film will will now release towards the end of this year.

“Bhediya is a high on VFX films with the makers trying to introduce the Indian audience to a completely new and different world. They have shot extensively at real locations in Arunachal Pradesh and the forests around. While the shoot is wrapped up, it’s currently in the post production stage. The visual effects are being done by MPC (Moving Picture Company), who have worked on films like 1917, The Jungle Book, The Lion King, Harry Potter, and Justice League among others,” A source close to the development was quoted saying.

As reported by the source, the visual effects are taking longer than expected because of which date has been pushed further by six months. “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,” the source concluded.

Bhediya currently is Varun’s second release of 2022 after Jug Jugg Jeeyo, which was announced for a June 24, 2022 release. Kriti too has multiple releases in 2022 before Bhediya as she will be seen alongside Akshay Kumar in Bachchan Pandey and Prabhas in Adipurush.

Talking about the VFX in March, 2021, Dinesh Vijan had said, “With an international VFX and Action team that hails from countries like the UK, South Africa and America, we are a massive unit trying to shoot a movie that is not only very unique, but also quite challenging technically. But by the end of the day, we are creating some fantastic imagery and moments.”
