An otherwise lazy Sunday morning at Cyber Hub, Gurgaon, was made special by actors Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh, who were shooting for their film Aiyaary, directed by Neeraj Pandey.

Sidharth, dressed in a black shirt and jeans, and Rakul, in an orange cold-shoulder top, were totally drenched — that’s because they were shooting a rain sequence. Amid tight security, fans tried their best to catch a glimpse of the actors. Storefronts, restaurant doorways, and balconies all around the shooting spot were filled with people.

The film, also starring Manoj Bajpayee, is based on real-life incidents and is the story of a mentor and his protégé. Portions have also been shot in Kashmir and London. This is the team’s second schedule in Delhi-NCR; the last schedule was in June, at India Gate.

In an earlier interview, when asked about Aiyaary, Sidharth was quoted as saying, “...Neeraj’s films have always been inspired by true events, and I have admired his films from the beginning as he is a content-driven director with an amazing storytelling ability. Aiyaary is also based on a story of true events. I am thrilled to venture into this new role of espionage and military intelligence with him.”
