Yes, you read it right. Our sources say that the makers of AIYAARY are ‘working’ out the possibilities of the movie coming on Republic day weekend next month to cash on its patriotic theme and clash with Bhansali’s PADMAAVAT which just yesterday got an open field by the magnificent gesture of none other than Akshay Kumar.
Akshay Kumar pushed the release of his highly awaited PADMAN to make way for PADMAAVAT considering that the stakes of Bhansali’s epic starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor are much higher.
However, the makers of AIYAARY that stars Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in lead are now seriously considering bouncing back to their earlier release plan of 26 January 2018. Our sources say that the makers feel that the patriotic theme of AIYAARY is best suited for the Republic Day weekend.
AIYYARY was pushed to February 09 2018 to avoid the clash with Akshay Kumar’s PADMAN Bhansali’s PADMAAVAT. This was a wise decision. How robust is their plan to release the film with PADMAAVAT now will be watched with wide eyes. Work on the available possibilities is in full swing and makers are likely to make the official announcement of AIYAARY coming on 26th January 2018 if things go as per their plan.
