Na­tional Award-win­ning film­maker Neeraj Pandey is known for hard-hit­ting films like A Wed­nes­day (2008), Spe­cial 26 (2013) and Baby (2015), among sev­eral oth­ers. And his up­com­ing film Aiyaary, an es­pi­onage thriller, which is set to re­lease this week, is al­ready made it to the top of the Most An­tic­i­pated In­dian Movies list on movie data base, IMDB.

Aiyaary show­cases the story of a loyal and obe­di­ent of­fi­cer Ma­jor Jai Bak­shi aka Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra who idolises his men­tor Colonel Ab­hay Singh aka Manoj Ba­j­payee, un­til the two have a ma­jor fall­out. The trailer re­veals this sto­ry­line, and al­ready has the au­di­ence hooked.

Says Pandey about his film be­ing ranked Num­ber 1, “This is over­whelm­ing. It feels great to be seen as the most awaited film, among films to be re­leased at this time. I hope the au­di­ence loves what we have made.” Pandey also calls it his “most lay­ered film” one that took on many more lay­ers than he ex­pected when he started writ­ing it.

The film has an en­sem­ble cast and also stars vet­eran ac­tors Anu­pam Kher and Naseerud­din Shah, along with Rakul Preet Singh and Pooja Cho­pra in piv­otal roles.

Re­liance En­ter­tain­ment, Fri­day Film­works and Jayan­ti­lal Gada (Pen Stu­dios) present Aiyaary. Pro­duced by Shi­tal Bha­tia, Dhaval Jayan­ti­lal Gada, Mo­tion Pic­ture Cap­i­tal is slated to re­lease on Fe­bru­ary 16.
