No Padman- Aiyaarya clash: Sidharth Malhotra - Manoj Bajpayee film to now release on THIS date (Source- Youtube grab)
Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer ‘Aiyaary’ is one of the most awaited films of the year. The thriller has been making waves ever since the trailer was released by the makers.
The Neeraj Pandey directorial was originally slated to hit the screens on January 26, clashing with Akshay Kumar’s Padman at the box office. However, the flick will now release on February 9.
There are reports that Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh starrer ‘Padmavat’ will hit theatres on January 25. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film has been embroiled in controversy since a long time.
To avoid the clash with two films at a time, the makers of Aiyaary have shifted the release date by two weeks. Considering the Republic Day weekend is already jam-packed, the decision to postpone the release of the film was taken.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the new release date of the upcoming film.
