"It's a controversial subject and it's a not an economical film. It's a historical drama, a big film with a relatively new star cast, so releasing it was a challenge and finally we have found a distributor who is taking up the challenge and is courageous enough to release the film," said director Ketan Mehta in an interview.
The much delayed film apparently faced a lot of hurdels because of the bold scenes picturised between the lead actors Randeep and Nandana.
However, the film is now ready to hit the silver screen on October 24, 2014.
Based on the 19th century painter Raja Ravi Varma, the film revolves around Varma's experiences painting Indian gods and goddesses.

The latest railer for Ketan Mehta's 'Rang Rasiya' looks intimate and artistic.
Based on the legendary 19th century painter Raja Ravi Varma, the story of the film revolves around Varma's experiences in being the first man to paint Indian gods and goddesses.
Randeep took to Twitter to announce the release of the film's trailer. He tweeted, "Raja Ravi Varma gave face to our Gods, sari as our national garment and was the guru of the father of Indian cinema.. (sic)"
