Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey is all set to start his next directorial soon. The film stars Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in the leads.

Like Neeraj's forte, this film is also crime thriller inspired by the 1987 Opera House heist. The premise talks about a group posing as CBI officers executing an income tax raid on Mumbai jewelery. 

It also revolves around the relationship between a mentor and a protégé. Talking about it, a source said, "These incredible characters exist and the incident actually happened. "

The source further added, "Neeraj was looking to explore a different kind of a story after MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. He has put together a great ensemble cast, along with Sidharth and Manoj." 

The film will be shot extensively in Delhi, London, and Kashmir. Neeraj will be shooting the film in several locations at the Valley.

Aiyaary film is set to go on floors in the month of May. It is slated to release during the Republic Day weekend in 2018.

The flick will be the first outing of Sidharth with both Neeraj and Manoj.

Exciting much?

Sidharth tweeted about the film stating, Super Excited to be in #aiyaary Neeraj Pandeys next ! Releasing 26th January 2018 @neerajpofficial"

When we tried to contact the trio - Sidharth, Manoj and Neeraj; they remained unavailable for a comment.

Sidharth's kitty is full with three films - Reload, Ittefaq and Neeraj's next. There are also reports of him starring opposite Alia Bhatt in Aashiqui 3. 

Manoj was last seen in a pivotal role in Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu starrer Naam Shabana. 

Neeraj, post the release of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, started working on his next project titled Crack starring Akshay in the leading role.

How did they land up together?

Neeraj Pandey I am shocked. I thought he only works with good actors not mediocre ones! How is Sid still getting work? He's un-watchable. Can't believe Neeraj is willing to ruin his stellar reputation for the likes of KJo and Sid!


Awesome!! Finally stepping out of Dharma and that caustic clan! Becomin his own man!! I get good feelings!

Sids back to his strategy of team up with a stronger actor who can carry the load...

If you think Manoj Bajpai is a strong actor who can carry films on his shoulder for commercial success then I think u need to consult a doctor. Your mind is not functioning well.

I read the book and liked so much. Waiting for the movie
