According to sources, the production cost of Pailwan has already crossed the 50-crore mark. During an interview Krishna said that “The Hindi version of Pailwan alone will be released in 2,000 screens across the globe, " he added, by saying, “talks are on to increase the number of screens.” 

Pailwan was supposed to release with Kurukshetra on the occasion of Varamahalakshmi Puja, but Director  Krishna decided to postpone it by a month.

Earlier Pailwan was supposed to be released in  nine languages, including Bengali, Punjabi and Bhojpuri. Afterworth, they decided for five languages following conditions laid by Zee Studios, which bought the distribution rights of the Hindi version of ‘a large sum’. Director Krishna said  “They felt releasing the film in North Indian languages would affect their business interests,”.

Pailwan also stars Aakanksha Singh, Sushant Singh, Kabir Duhan Singh, Avinash and Sharath Lohitashwa. Krishna says, “Sudeep worked hard for six months to hone his body to suit the character. He even learnt wrestling and different boxing techniques to make the character look authentic and impressive.”
