He tweeted, ‘#Radhe, starring #SalmanKhan and #DishaPatani: The film is not complete yet… Filming of two songs and some sequences pending… Dubbing, VFX, post-production work pending too.”
There were reports that the makers may release the film directly on OTT platform and are hunting for a big deal. Well, it looks tough as the film is not complete. The release date would be pushed further.
