The makers of Aiyaary has postponed the film to avoid clash with Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan. Aiyaary starring Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet in the lead roles was supposed to hit the theatres on 9 February alongside PadMan, but will now release on February 16.
While the makers haven’t revealed the actual reason for film being postponed, it looks like that the Neeraj Pandey directorial ran into trouble with the CBFC. Earlier this week, Aiyaary producer Jayantilal Gada had also told PTI, “There is no problem as such. The revising committee will see the film today. There is a screening being held today in Delhi. We are hopeful that the film will be cleared and release on February 9.”
Since Aiyaary is set against the army backdrop, rumours about the Defense Ministry wanting to review the film were also being reported recently.
Now Akshay Kumar’s PadMan will enjoy a solo release this Friday.
