Even Hollywood filmmaker Danny Boyle cited 'Black Friday' as an inspiration for his 2008 Academy award-winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire' and stated that the opening chase scene from his film was inspired by 'Black Friday'. Just like 2004, the film is still shining on Disney+Hotstar platform but with huge missing details.

Recently, Anurag Kashyap highlighted the film's missing details on Twitter and retweeted a tweeter's tweet which quoted 'Black Friday' running time and edited scenes issue on Disney+Hotstar. The user raised a question on the streaming service with regards to the film's audio quality. The user's tweet reads as, "Black Friday's duration on @DisneyplusHSVIP is 133 min. The original run-time is 167 min. Who decides to edit the film? Who gives you the power to edit a film @hotstar_helps? Plus, the audio quality of the film is terribly bad."
