Aiyaari rakes up Adarsh housing scam

Mumbai: Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary has finally got the censor board certification for 16 February release.  After viewing the film, the asked for it to be screened for officials of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) which asked for multiple changes. It was only after these were incorporated that the film was granted with a ‘U/A’ certificate.

The censors insisted on the MoD seeing the espionage thriller not because Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee play army officers in it but because the film, which tackles corruption, also rakes up the Adarsh Housing scam.

Neeraj Pandey took to Twitter to thank the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Ministry of Defense for clearing his upcoming film, Aiyaary, for a 16 February release.

The Adarsh Housing Society is a posh, 31-storey constructed on a prime real estate in Colaba, Mumbai, for the welfare of war widows and personnel of India’s Ministry of Defence.

The was unearthed in November 2010 which forced the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Ashok Chavan to resign.

In January 2011, the Maharashtra government set up a two-member judicial commission to inquire into the matter. The commission was headed by retired High Court judge Justice JA Patil, with NN Kumbhar acting as member secretary. After deposing 182 witnesses over 2 years, the commission submitted its final report in April 2013 to the Maharashtra government.

In Aiyaary, there are references to Sidharth and Pooja Chopra’s characters to a plot in Mumbai’s Colaba. Even Naseeruddin Shah who plays a watchman, alludes to this particular plot, saying that the being constructed was meant for the widows of martyred soldiers. “Kha jayenge, neta aur neta ke chamche,” his character sighs, alluding to the Adarsh scam.

The film portrays Sidharth as an army officer sharing a mentor-protege bond with Manoj. Aiyaary also stars Rakul Preet Singh, Pooja Chopra in pivotal roles.

Delighted to still be at #1. Look at some of the idea pathogenic books on that list, @VDHanson excepted of course.

I've been saying since day 1 that crypto isn't secure & is an easy target for thieves. @nayibukele take note. By rushing the launch of his Chivo wallet, ELSL is the #1 target for hackers worldwide, & it won't be long until they drain his #BTC stash.
