On february 1, rumors that Shaakuntalam's release had been delayed circulated. The same was confirmed by insiders, who also said that the team had difficulty with Shaakuntalam's hindi release, which is why they chose to delay the movie's release. The march 25th release of Pathaan starring Shah Rukh Khan is doing well in the North belt. Therefore, Shaakuntalam didn't receive the requisite number of screens.
This was one of the factors that led to the postponement of Kartik Aaryan's Shezada, whose release date was originally set for february 10. Shaakuntalam's release is reportedly in the makers' sights for march or the summer. The release of the movie is likely to be officially announced by the producers soon. The trailer for Shaakuntalam was recently released by the movie's producers. Everyone's interest and curiosity were sparked by the promo.
