Starring Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet Singh and stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher, the film is based on true characters and incidents and is also shot in real locations, like Kashmir.
Neeraj is known for his work in many award winning films. Aiyaary is a tribute to the brave soldiers of our country and is thus scheduled to release on 26 January, our Republic Day. The first poster of the film was released on the occasion of Vijay Diwas (16 December 2017).
Chocolate boy, Sidharth Malhotra, who is normally seen in the role of a lover boy, is a Capricorn, born on 16 January. ‘One of the most desirable men’ of India, Sidharth has managed to hold his own in the few movies that he has done. Although his nice and wholesome looks may not have held him in good stead while doing menacing roles, in Aiyaary, he has managed with ease, the intense look that his role demanded. He, of course, looks dashing and very smart in his fatigues. The ruling planet of Capricorn, Saturn, is home in 2018, greatly empowering Sidharth. His goals and dreams could be realised this year and what better than to start from the release of Aiyaary in January itself. Coming from a services background, Sidharth played the role of an officer in the Indian army, in this film, with perfection.
Manoj Bajpayee, born on 23 April is a Taurus. This ‘method actor’, known for his unconventional roles, has the ability to carry a film on his able shoulders, with ease. But this down to earth and dependable, Taurus, needs a lucky break in his career, which seems to be flagging for the past one or two years. He has always been a hard worker and the universe will be supporting his dreams as Mars transits to Scorpio on January 17. It looks like Manoj will be getting accolades for a job well done in this film. Playing the role of Sidharth’s fellow officer and mentor, Manoj claims this is his best ever performance and will be one of the best films of his career.
Rakul Preet Singh, who plays the lady love of Sidharth, is a Libra, born on 10 October. 2018 urges her to continue experimenting with new roles as it will help her career move in the upward direction.
Veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah, plays a pivotal role as a whistleblower in the film. Born on 20 July, 2018 will be giving this Cancer, many a chance to showcase his prowess as an actor this year. The opportunities that he would get, could yet be based on the success of Aiyaary.
Although the film’s release will clash with Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man, the two films are totally different and this fast-paced action movie could give the Akshay starrer, a run for money.
