Orlando Bloom’s upcoming film, Retaliation that has a massive Indian connect, is all set for release in the US on July 24. Starring Bloom as Malky, it is a gritty revenge drama, which features him as a demolition worker.

Talking about the release in India, Talwar adds, “We are waiting to see when theatres open here in India and a decision about the release will be taken post that. In an ideal scenario, we would like a theatrical release.”
