Actor Sidharth Malhotra who will seen playing a pivotal role in Aiyaary, says the clash between the movie and Akshay Kumar's PadMan could have been avoided. Aiyaary which was slated to release on January 25 because of its patriotic vibe. The film moved its release date to February 9 to avoid the clash with PadMan.
The movie also stars Rakul Preet Singh, Anupam Kher and Naseerudin Shah.
Akshay Kumar on the request of Sanjay leela Bhansali to let Padmaavat get a solo release postponed its release date from January 25 to February 9 hence again clashing it with Aiyaary.
Sidharth said, Yes, it irritates, but now it’s too late. What can we do now? Look, we announced the date first. When ‘Pad Man’ makers unveiled their release date, we were gracious enough to shift our release date to avoid the clash.
This situation could have resolved earlier, people could have stuck to their dates, respecting others’ space. I was not expecting the makers of ‘Pad Man’ to release their film with us, especially the second time. We thought we will get a solo release. See, eventually the fate of the film will speak for itself. We are confident about our film, it has its audience. Now that we cannot change anything, we can hope for the best, he added.
Aiyaary, set in Delhi, London and Kashmir, the story is about two strong-minded Army officers having completely different ways,yet right in their own ways.
We can understand Sidharth how irritating all this is but we can just wish you and your movie a ton of luck !!!!!!
