The master of thriller films, Neeraj Pandey is back with his another captivating thriller titled Aiyaary. Starring Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles, the film is buzzing since last year when its announcement was made. After getting postponed several times, now finally, it is all set to hit theaters from this Friday i.e. 16 February 2018.
After Special 26 and Baby with superstar Akshay Kumar, Aiyaary is the latest crime thriller of director Neeraj Pandey. The previous ones were successful and received huge appreciation from everyone. The similar response we could expect for the new one as well, but this time Akshay is not here.
Although the film has created good buzz among the audience with its promos that projects a good score at the box office but unfortunately Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat and Akshay Kumar’s PadMan still have a strong hold over the audience, which will definitely interrupt the run of Aiyaary.
Looking back to the previous box office records of Neeraj, then his Special 26 registered the opening of 7 crores and Baby did 9.33 crores. While the last release of Sidharth Malhotra, Ittefaq opened to an average note with 4.05 crores.
So after considering all the facts and figures, Aiyaary seems capable to open in a range of 5-7 crores at the domestic box office. Definitely, it could take a solid jump over the weekend if audience reacts in favor.
Alongside the lead actors, Aiyaary has a strong supporting cast that includes Anupam Kher, Adil Hussain, Kumud Mishra, Vikram Gokhale, Naseeruddin Shah, and Pooja Chopra. This can pull more audience for the film in multiplexes.
