However, the film which released across 396 screens in 39 countries has been doing quite well overseas. Aiyaary’s box office collection has been Rs 8.81 Crore ($ 1.36 million). In its 11th day overseas, 558 USD [Rs. 36,150] from 12 screens in Australia and 295 USD [Rs. 19,111] from 6 screens in New Zealand.
Aiyaary didn’t get the response that other Neeraj Pandey releases Special 26 and Baby received in the past. The movie’s release date has been postponed twice after the initial date of January 26. The producers pushed the release date to February 9 to avoid a box office clash with Padmaavat. Then, the film even after being a Neeraj Pandey production earned just Rs 13 crore over the weekend. Aiyaary had to fight it out with PadMan, that was going steady on the box office. The film now will have to face a torrid time after the release of another romantic comedy ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’. SKTKS has already minted over Rs 25 Crores in 3 days.
Aiyaary had created quite a buzz among movie buffs during the time of its release. The crime drama is based on a true story about the Indian Army. Aiyaary stars Manoj Bajpayee, Siddharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh. It also casts Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah in major roles. In the film, Manoj Bajpayee portrays the role of an Army officer whereas Siddharth Malhotra is his prodigy. Rakul Preet Singh is the latter’s love interest in the film.
