The movie has loosely included many real-life events including the Adarsh scam, thus aiming to build a strong connection with the audience. According to reports, the real-life events were one of the reasons why the movie didn't get the certificate early.

The Defence Ministry had not cleared Aiyaary, which is why it released after Valentine's Day. Otherwise, the movie was supposed to clash with PadMan on February 9. Before that, it was set to hit the screens on January 26, but Padmaavat made the makers shift their date.

Aiyaary also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Rakul Preet Singh, Pooja Chopra in pivotal roles.
