The comedy drama will now be releasing on June 12 this year. Announcing the update on social media, Rajkummar Rao, who will play a sports teacher in Chhalaang, shared a new poster and wrote: "Ab lenge Chhalaang June 12th ko! Masterji khilayen kaise? Bachche busy hain exams ki padhayi mein. Toh masterji khilayenge garmi ki chhuttiyon mein! Exams ke liye best of luck!" The poster features Rajkummar, Nushrat Bharucha and Saurabh Shukla standing on a playground with a couple of students sitting around them with books in their hands.

Directed by Hansal Mehta and produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg, Chhalaang is set in a small town of Uttar Pradesh. It will also feature Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in pivotal role. The film got a new title last year as the makers changed its name from Turram Khan to Chhalaang.
Chhalaang will mark Rajkummar Rao's sixth collaboration with Hansal Mehta. The duo have previously worked together in Shahid, CityLights, Aligarh, and Omerta. The film will be Rajkummar and Nushrat's first project together.
