Aditya Chopra and YRF's CEO Akshaye Widhani, Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha recently spoke and arrived at a common consensus to avoid a clash. The move has resulted in the attachment of Anek with Jayeshbhai Jordaar, making it the first non-YRF film trailer to be attached to a YRF film. Director-producer Anubhav Sinha who is working with Ayushmann for the second time in the film after their last successful collaboration of Article 15, said in a statement, "A lot of hardwork and planning goes into the making of a film and by that principle it deserves undivided attention. We were happy to shift the release of 'Anek' by a few days so that audiences can now enjoy both films in a spaced out manner."
