Revealing more about the movie schedule, the director said, “Hijrat’s release date had always been January 21st, 2016. We chose this day because we wanted to give maximum screen space to other movies like *Ho Mann Jahaan and Revenge of the Worthless. Also, we didn’t want Hijrat to clash with them.”
