Dobaara was earlier planned for a May 2nd 2017 release in India, however it was later changed to June 2nd 2017. The film is directed by Prawaal Raaman who has earlier directed Indian films such as Gayab, 404 Error Not Found, Darling, and Main aur Charles, which was loosely based on serial killer Charles Sobhraj.
