Neeraj Pandey’s political thriller Aiyaary is all set to release on silverscreen on February 9. It will be locking horns with Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man. Ahead of its release, lead actor Manoj Bajpayee has spilled beans on the meaning of title ‘Aiyaary’. The actor spoke to ANI and explained the meaning of the title.
The 48-year-old told ANI, "The meaning of the word 'Aiyaari' means imposter, who pretends to be someone else in order to deceive others, especially for fraudulent gain".
"This is what our (Sidharth and Manoj) characters love to do in the film", he added.
Talking about the positive response for its trailer, the actor said, "It feels good if your movie's trailer is being liked by people in the beginning as it indicates that people are getting curious to watch the film, which automatically helps us clear the first stage".
The movie, which also stars Rakul Preet Singh, Pooja Chopra, Adil Hussain, Kumud Mishra, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in the lead roles, is at set to hit the theatres on February 9. Earlier, the film was scheduled to release on January 26th on Republic Day. But after Padmaavat was announced to release on January 25th, the makers shifted the date to avert the clash with two biggies Pad Man and Padmaavat. However, Pad Man, at the last moment, was shifted to February 9.
