Interestingly, Aiyaary was initially scheduled to release on January 25, but fearing the box-office congestion created by PadMan and Padmaavat, the makers of the Neeraj Pandey directorial decided to hold off till February 9.
However, now that PadMan has been shifted to February 9 as well, we wonder what would the next course of action be for team Aiyaary.
In this regard, what did catch our eye was a tweet by trend analyst and film critic Komal Nahta claiming that Aiyaary has been again shifted to its original release date alongside Padmaavat on January 25.
