Aiyaary starring Manoj Bajpayee, Sidharth Malhotra, Anupam Kher, Rakupreet Singh, Pooja Chopra and Naseeruddin Shah is all set to release next week on 9th February 2018. However, the film has not received a censor certificate till now.
Since the film is set against the army backdrop, the Defence Ministry wanted to review the film. A special screening of Aiyaary was held by the revising committee of Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, which was also attended by the officials from the Defence Ministry. The body has asked for certain changes in the film.
Reacting to this, Aiyaary’s lead actor Sidharth Malhotra said “Our film doesn’t have severe issues as far as I know after talking with my producers. I have full faith that our producers will come up with a positive result, so I don’t see any issue with that. I hope that our film has a smooth release.”
According to reports, “The Defence Ministry watched Aiyaary on Saturday afternoon. Multiple scenes have been a point of debate and the film team has been asked to modify the objectionable parts. The body, however, is being tight-lipped about the content of these scenes.”
The film portrays Sidharth as an army officer sharing a mentor-protégé bond with Manoj Bajpayee.
