Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary is one of the most anticipated movies of 2018. Aiyaary is a tribute to the brave soldiers, who laid down their lives for the country in 1971. Ever since the trailer of the movie released, moviegoers have been curious to unravel the suspense that the maverick of thrillers, Neeraj Pandey has in store for us.
As the movie is gearing up for release, everyone is highly excited to see a stunning ensemble on screen. Aiyaary‘s cast is an interesting one. It features some of the most celebrated veteran actors of Hindi cinema along with some from the young generation. Let’s take a look at the stellar cast:
Heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra will be making his debut in the army avatar. So far, we have seen him in the character of a gentleman, a college boy, a villain and a writer among others. However, this is the first time that the actor is playing the role of an army officer Major Jai Bakshi, who was once an honest office. Not just that, this army officer actually goes up against his own department and the government itself. It would be quite amazing to watch this novel transition from his earlier performances.
Manoj Bajpayee is someone who pulls off every character with such audacity and ease on the screen that hardly any actor can match up to. This versatile actor has racked up multiple visual treats for the viewers and alike. The recipient of two National Film Award, Manoj Bajpayee has delivered spectacular performances in Raajneeti, Special 26, Pinjar, Aligarh and Satya. Aiyaary marks his sixth collaboration with Neeraj Pandey. He plays Colonel Abhay Singh, who has complete faith in the system. We can expect another power-packed performance from this splendid actor.
From delivering typical masala movies to dancing spectrally in a photo frame, from being a conventional, even muscular action hero to playing a Bollywood-besotted autowallah, Naseeruddin Shah is one actor who can do anything. His performances in movies like Maqbool, Sparsh, Masoom, and Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro were memorable. His presence in Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary makes the movie way more special and powerful. When he is on screen, you can’t help but be amazed by his stature.
Rakul Preet Singh
Marking her debut with Neeraj Pandey, Rakul Preet Singh is all set to give a new beginning to her career. Although she is a known face in Tamil, Hindi and Kannada movies, but her Bollywood career has not been successful. Aiyaary is sure to bring out the best in her. Her glimpses in the trailer and song videos of Aiyaary look immensely impressive. She looks stunning and promises a great performance.
Actor Anupam Kher is one of the best actors, not only in Indian cinema but he has also made his mark in Hollywood too. He is known for his perfect comic timing and all the magnificent roles. He is one of those few actors who gets into the skin of the characters and brings them alive on screen. Movies like Saaransh, Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara, Special 26 and Daddy will be remembered for decades to come.
