The film, slated to release on January 26, 2018, was looking at an inevitable clash with Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s 2.0. With the sequel of Enthiran slotted for January 25 release.Also Read - Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi vs Salman Khan's Antim: Mahesh Manjrekar Speaks on Possible Box Office Clash This Diwali
Thankfully, better sense has prevailed and Aiyaary is now shifted to February. In a tweet just minutes ago, Trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed that Aiyaary will now release on February 9, 2018. However, while this has given 2.0 a solo release, Aiyaary still will face competition in its new release date.

Anushka Sharma’s next production, Pari, starring her in the lead, has already been locked for the said date and Sidharth Malhotra will have to lock horns with this supernatural horror thriller. Anushka has a loyal fan following. Add to that, Pari’s genre remains untapped in Bollywood and a horror film starring a popular face will definitely excite audience. The first look of the film already upped fans’ interest. Aiyaary on the other hand is a crime drama based on a real life incident.
At a casual meet and greet session in Mumbai last month, director Neeraj Pandey had revealed all that we can expect from the film. Sidharth plays a young major and Manoj Bajpayee his colonel and the two will be seen locking horns in the film since they come from two different generations and schools of thought.
