The poster features massive army trucks in the background and a long sedan at the front. There is someone in the driver’s seat and a passenger, seemingly swinging a newspaper in the air.
Sidharth says he is excited to play the role of an army espionage agent in the film. “I am really thrilled to work with Neeraj as he always brings an element of reality to his content. It is going to be very interesting, looking forward to start shooting,” Sidharth said in a statement.
The project also stars Manoj Bajpayee and is based on true events. It will be a 2018 Republic Day release. It revolves around the relationship between a mentor and a protégé.
The story is set in Delhi, London, and Kashmir. Pandey, who likes to shoot in real locations, will be shooting parts of it in Kashmir. It goes on the floors in May.
Manoj Bajpayee and Sidharth Maholtra will be sharing the screen for the first time, hence this fresh, on-screen, bromantic (or maybe platonic) relationship is something to look forward to in Neeraj Pandey’s new film. The film ‘Aiyaary’ is a Friday Filmworks Productions and is produced by Shital Bhatia.
The film is scheduled to release on January 26.
