The film was released on June 5 on the occasion of Eid festival.

With another World Cup match between India and Australia at the weekend (Saturday), the film will have to compete in its first weekend. This fight has become even tougher than leaking online on ‘Pirate’ websites with ‘Bharat‘.
With strong word of mouth, 'Bharat' continues to attract more family audience to theatres.
