Along with the release of the poster, the actor also revealed that the film’s trailer will be out on August 10 at 12:30 pm.
The poster has the film’s baseline – fused bulb se kranti nahi layi ja sakti – prominently written over it. While a fused bulb covers the foreground of the poster, in the background is the aerial view of a city. An electricity bill of Rs 2,30,450.25 is also clearly visible on the poster.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu, directed by Shree Narayan Singh of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha fame, is easily one of the most-awaited films set to release this year. Shahid and Shraddha started shooting the film in February in Uttarakhand’s Tehri. With KriArj Entertainment, the former co-producers, getting into financial troubles, the shoot got delayed by almost two months. The film was wrapped up in July.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu was earlier slated to release on August 31 but to avoid clash with Stree, it was postponed to September 21. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Nishant Pitti under the film production banner of T-Series Films.
