The upcoming romantic drama Dil Bechara is scheduled to finally be released this week, but at what time exactly will the highly-anticipated movie premiere?

If we are being honest, I don’t think there has been a movie with this much excitement and expectation behind it than Dil Bechara.

Within 24 hours of the film’s trailer being released at the start of the month, it became the most ‘liked’ trailer on YouTube, easily surpassing titles like Avengers: Endgame.

The film is scheduled to be released on Disney Plus Hotstar this week, but when exactly will the movie be available to watch online?

Dil Bechara release date: Disney Plus Hotstar

  • At the time of writing, Dil Bechara is scheduled to be released on Disney Plus Hotstar on Friday, July 24, 2020.

This official date comes as a massive relief to many fans who have been waiting patiently for the film’s release for over 6 months. The movie was initially scheduled to premiere on November 29, 2019, but was delayed in the post-production phase.

The release date was then pushed back to May 8 2020, but the film was again delayed – this time because of the growing coronavirus pandemic.

However, following the tragic suicide of Rajput in June 2020, Fox Star Studios announced that the film would be made available for free so that it could be “watched by many” as a tribute to the late actor.

Dil Bechara release time: Disney Plus Hotstar

  • Dil Bechara will premiere at 7: 30 PM IST on Disney Plus Hotstar.

Speaking to IANS, director Mukesh Chhabra said that releasing the movie at a specific time would “would give the audience a chance to enjoy it together with their loved ones and family, exactly the way they would do in the theatres.”

Initially, many thought that the film would be released at around 6: 00 AM, when Disney Plus Hotstar usually upload new episodes of content.

However, we really like this idea, it means we can all look forward to the premiere all day and organise an evening out of the premiere in a similar way to if we were going to the theatre. Plus, we have waited over 6 months, we can wait another 12 hours.

Will the movie be released outside India?

  • Director Mukesh Chhabra also revealed that the film would be available for viewers in the US, the UK and Canada.

As Hotstar is owned by Disney, Dil Bechara will most likely premiere on the standard Disney Plus streaming service. However, we don’t yet know if when this will be.

As always, we will bring you updates if any of the information is changed or new information is officially announced by either Hotstar, Disney or Fox Star Studios.
