On The Sense of an Ending being his English-language directorial debut, Batra said, “These are exciting times as the film has sold all over the world. I do believe that it is a matter of time before we make Indian stories with great Indian actors that will travel more than or as much as English language cinema does.”

The film is set to hit American cinemas on March 10 next year and will be released in the United Kingdom on March 24.
