The film is all set to release on Friday, November 3, 2023, in theatres across India.

Sharing his thoughts on the movie, Arun Govil says, “The name seems unusual to all of us but it is a word of Kashmiri language and its basic meaning is that there is a lullaby which is sung there, it is a spiritual lullaby in which it talks about the relationship between God and man. So, this film is also a relationship between a God and a human being and a film has been made on it.”

The character I am playing in this film, Arjun, is a die-hard fan of Sachin Tendulkar Sir. I am also a fan of Sachin Tendulkar. I can’t tell you about cricket, I follow it a lot and this is through my father. has just arrived. As the film is based on Kashmir, I told them only one thing I do not want a controversial or political agenda in this film.

Talking about the film, Vinay Bhardwaj said, “It is a story based on relationships. It is very important to understand the relationships within the family. Nowadays, there are a lot of problems going on outside. If there is everything at home is okay, then only we will be able to handle the problems outside.”

He added, “The story is based on Krishna, there is a cricket aspect in it which will connect people. This is also a story of father and son, which shows that we are never able to speak to our father and about their faith.”

Today, he (Vinay Bhardwaj) has made a film that shows the truth needed by the world. In this divisive world, ‘Hukus Bukus’ is one such story that speaks of connecting hearts. He has eloquently explained that when there are three aces – Krishna, Kashmir and Cricket and a story is narrated through a father and his son which brings hearts closer, it feels that there are still directors who narrate such life-affirming stories in their debut efforts.” Producer-Director of ‘Hukus Bukus,’ Vinay Bhardwaj said, “Your presence today, capturing the voices of the makers, cast, and crew, is a testament to the power of storytelling and the importance of the media in sharing these stories with the world.
