Defence Ministry asks for multiple changes in Aiyaary

Mumbai: Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary has run into fresh trouble with the defence ministry asking for multiple changes in the film after watching it. The Revising Committee of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting held a special screening of the film for the officials from defence ministry on Saturday. The officials then suggested certain changes in the film; the exact nature of these changes have not been disclosed.

Aiyaary starring Manoj Bajpayee, Sidharth Malhotra, Anupam Kher, Rakupreet Singh, Pooja Chopra and Naseeruddin Shah is scheduled to release next week on 9 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.

Actor Sidharth Malhotra is confident that producers will take care of these changes. He 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.

After giving up the 25 January slot to avoid a clash with Padmaavat, the makers of Aiyaary pushed the release date to 9 February. However, Akshay Kumar’s Padman also got postponed to 9 February which means that both the films will release together.

Aiyaary is the story of two strong-minded army officers having completely different views, yet right in their own ways. 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.
