A few days back, multiple media outlets mentioned that director Rosshan Andrrews' Dulquer Salmaan-starrer Salute was selected for the 2022 edition of the International Film Festival of Rotterdam. However, the Salute team has confirmed that the news is false. The film's production controller Sidhu Panakkal confirmed the same to Cinema Express.
