Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in AiyaaryTwitter

Sidharth Malhotra's shocking status on Twitter had left everyone zapped. The actor had tweeted "sorry iam done !" a few days ago and removed his profile picture.

While we were still wondering what pushed him to do so, the hunk is back on Twitter. Fortunately, nothing big has happened. It was only a promotional strategy for his upcoming movie Aiyaary.

While you were thinking what happened to A Gentleman star, Manoj Bajpayee tweeted to clear the doubts. He tweeted: "Major jai bakshi!!as your commanding officer i order you to come bak.@S1dharthM #Aiyaary."

Right after Manoj's tweet, Sidharth returned to Twitter and reported to his mentor Colonel Abhay Singh i.e. Manoj Bajpayee.

Sidharth promptly tweeted saying: "Major Jai Bakshi reporting for duty sir... Will try not to go rogue again. #Aiyaary @BajpayeeManoj."

So, it was a publicity stunt to promote their upcoming movie Aiyaary. Manoj Bajpayee is playing the role of Colonel Abhay Singh and Sidharth Malhotra will be seen as Major Jai Bakshi.
