The release date was announced after the Maharashtra government announced that theatres will reopen in the state in October.

The film was initially set for April 2020 release but was postponed due to the outbreak of coronavirus that led to nationwide lockdown in the country. Director Kabir Khan later was looking into June 4, 2021 release but just then the second wave of Covid-19 had hit the country, leading to lockdown in most of the states.

On Saturday, the Maharashtra government announced that the theatres will reopen from October 22, a couple of weeks before Diwali. The decision was welcomed by the Bollywood fraternity as Maharashtra contributes heavily to Bollywood, in terms of revenue.

Apart from 83, Akshay Kumar also announced the release date of Sooryavanshi that is eyeing the Diwali release.
