Earlier today, it was announced that Sidharth Malhotra would be collaborating for the first time with Director Neeraj Pandey in a film titled Aiyaary, which also stars Pandey regular, Manoj Bajpayee. The film is based on true events between a mentor and protégé and is slated for a 2018 Republic Day release.
While this was exciting news indeed, what it also does is put the film straight on a collision course with another eagery anticipated film of a young star Sushant Singh Rajput’s space adventure, Chanda Mama Door Ke, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and R. Madhavan.
Box-office clashes are now nothing new, but they’ve hitherto happened between big superstars. This is the first time that two young-and-rising stars of Bollywood would be clashing at the ticket window, and it’d be interesting to see what sort of impact if any it would have on their films.
