The film was ready for release in 2015. However, it was stuck due to financial constraints. Now, with the popularity of digital platforms, Ghoomketu is finally seeing the light of the day. The director talked to Mid-Day in his latest interaction and revealed what could be the possible reasons behind the film’s delayed release apart from money issues. He said, “I think now is the right time to release the movie because people’s taste has evolved. One of the reasons why it was held up (for so long) could be because it was a heartland story. But of late, they have been loved by the audience. Since Ghoomketu is not a formula film, it has stayed relevant even five years after it was made.”
