As of now, there is no indication of a theatrical release for The Boy and the Heron in India, and there have been no official announcements. This absence of news is disappointing for Ghibli fans in the country, especially considering the recent interest shown by various distribution companies in capturing the Indian anime fan base.

Notably, PVRs and IMAX, which have actively collaborated with distributors, as seen during the release of Suzume in India, do not seem to be bringing a glimmer of hope this time.

The Boy and the Heron initially premiered in Japan on July 14, 2023, followed by screenings in the United States on December 8, 2023, and most recently in the United Kingdom. Fans in India will have to stay tuned for any updates on the release date in their region.
