Now if it has been done to avoid a clash with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary or there has is some another reason for the delay is yet to be known.

Taapsee and Saqib have been promoting the rom-com for a long time now. The two actors have shared videos of them celebrating Valentines Week. From Rose Day to Chocolate Day, Saqib has been trying to woe Taapsee in best ways possible. Apart from Saqib and Taapsee, the film also stars Abhilash Thapliyal, Shrishti Shrivastav and Nidhi Singh. Presented by Pooja Entertainment and Dinesh Jain, this Vashu Bhagnani’s film is produced by Deepshika Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, Mudit Jain and Mayank Jain.
Talking about her character in Dil Junglee at Lakme Fashion Week, Taapsee told IANS, “I am not really a romantic person, though I am playing a character who is very romantic. It is tough for me to do all those things on camera because I am not really like that at all. In fact, I am nowhere near to my character Koroli Nair in anyway whatsoever — be it in the way she dresses, speaks or the way she reacts.”
