Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee’s Aiyaary has completed the 1st week at the box office. The film falls flat after the week.

This crime thriller has earned 0.25* on its 2nd Friday taking the total to 16.39 crores* at the box office. The film was already facing a competition from Akshay Kumar’s PadMan and Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh’s Padmaavat but now it will also face a competition from Karthik Aaryan, Sunny Singh and Nushrat ‘s Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety which released this Friday.
A plea was flied by the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society which sought a stay on film’s release claiming the Society and and its member were projected in bad light. But later the Supreme Court refused to stay the release of film the Aiyaary.
“Movies don’t influence the court’s judgement,” it said after the society mentioned the film was likely to defame its members and can adversely affect the trial of the case related to the Adarsh scam.
The bench said criminal cases are decided on the basis of evidence and documents placed on record and the court does not get influenced by movies.
The court also could not restrict the artistic freedom of filmmakers which is one of the most cherished right under the Constitution, the bench said, taking into consideration that the film was cleared by the CBFC after consultation with Army authorities. The court could not interfere in the functioning of a statutory body, said the bench.
