The poster shows the Sidharth, Anupam Kher, Rakul Preet Singh, Naseeruddin Shah and Manoj Bajpayee in an intense look with a flair of Indian national flag all over it. Previously, movie's filmmaker Neeraj Pandey said, "Vijay Diwas is a very significant day for the military troops of the country. It's a tribute to the martyrs who laid down their lives for the victory of India in 1971. We thought what better day than this to release the poster of our film, Aiyaary. We dedicate it to our military troops and their brave families". The movie is based on a real life incident.
On a related note, Neeraj Pandey has earlier made hit films such as Baby and Special 26 starring Akshay Kumar. But, this time his upcoming flick is all set to collide with none other than his favourite himself. PadMan, also starring Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor will hit silver screen on 2018 Republic Day.
