Of late, the reports of filmmaker Neeraj Pandey’s action crime thriller ‘Aiyaary’ postponing its release date again were making rounds of the internet. The reason behind this was reported to be the Defence ministry, who had demanded a screening of the movie before it hits the theatres and apparently the ministry also recommended a few changes after watching the film. After incorporating the recommended changes, the team was to submit their film to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). And today, finally the film has received the clearance from CBFC. They have also pushed the release date once again and have moved it to February 16.
