Requesting fans to extend their support, the makers of Doctor had issued a statement earlier, stating, “Doctor has been a wonderful experience from the word go, and your enthusiasm and love for the posters and songs have given us more energy. We were excited about bringing you the film on 26th of March, 2021. Owing to the elections, we will be postponing the release to a later, more suitable date. We’re taking this call keeping the best interests of our film, the upcoming elections and most importantly the fans in mind,” the statement read.   

It was once again slated for release on the occasion of Ramzan, but was postponed due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Get ready to witness Dr Varun & co in Doctor on the special occasion of Ramzan, a grand festival release. We’re going to take this time to sharpen our knives and refill our syringes,” KJR studios announced on March 11.
