Aiyaary features Sidharth Malhotra as an army officer sharing a mentor-protégéis bond with Manoj Bajpayee. It is based on a real-life incident that revolves around two strong-minded army officers having completely different views, and are yet right in their own ways.
This is the first time when Sidharth Malhotra is teaming up with Manoj Bajpayee and Neeraj Pandey. The film will be shot in Delhi, London, and Kashmir.
“These incredible characters exist and the incident actually happened. Neeraj was looking to explore a different kind of a story after MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. He has put together a great ensemble cast, along with Sidharth and Manoj,” said an insider.
The character essayed by Naseeruddin is under strict wraps as of now. Presented by Reliance Entertainment and Plan C Studios, the film is a Friday Filmworks Productions and is produced by Shital Bhatia. It is scheduled to release on January 26, 2018.
