Sanwar also said, "The situation is a big shock for the entertainment world. It's like a tsunami that has swept away our small industry. But we have to move forward with patience," adding that they wanted to premiere the movie to a large audience. "It would have been better if the film could be released during Eid. Now that it is not possible. I will release the first part of the movie later at a convenient time. The second part will be released afterwards," the director stated.
He added, "We wanted to release Mission Extreme in several countries. I was thinking of releasing it to relax the situation. However, it is clear that the time is not coming any time soon."
