Akshay Kumar in Sooryavanshi: The cop thriller universe of Rohit Shetty has a new face. In December last year, Rohit Shetty introduced Akshay Kumar as the new face of his next project. However, the project was not decided until then. It was in June 2019 that he announced his upcoming movie Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar along with Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh. Though Rohit Shetty had already launched Ranveer Singh as Sangram Bhalerao aka Simmba and Ajay Devgn as Bajirao Singham in his previous action flicks, he decided to add them to the upcoming flick as well to create a separate fan base for the multi-starrer project.
The shooting of the film has currently reached its climax which is taking place in Hyderabad the source informs “It will a grand finale with Singham, Simmba and Sooryavanshi teaming up to fight a larger-than-life situation. Rohit and his writers have been working on the climax for months and have finally cracked a scenario which does justice to the three super cops”
As per the reports, Ranveer Singh has left for Hyderabad to join Katrina Kaif who will be seen alongside Akshay Kumar in the film. As the makers have not released any information regarding the movie, Katrina Kaif decided to tease her fans with her posts. Recently, while shooting in Hyderabad, Katrina took to social media to disclose Akshay Kumar’s identity via his cop batch picture captioning it “Now Shooting 🎬 #sooryavanshi #onset @itsrohitshetty @akshaykumar @karanjohar”. The batch read the name ‘Veer Sooryavanshi’ which is the role played by Akshay Kumar.
Akshay Kumar films are the most awaited ones and it has been a long time since he has been seen doing some crazy action. The combination of an action-hero and action-director is sure to give some extra crisp to the film’s action.
Earlier, Katrina said that her equation with Akshay Kumar has remained the same for years. “With him, it always feels like going back home. He is a wonderful co-star. Still so focussed and dedicated to his craft. He loves his craft and you can see that.”
She also said “Akshay and I reunite for the film and we have worked in some great films in the past. It’s a dream team and I’m happy to be a part of it,”
Apart from Katrina, the film also stars Abhimanyu Singh as the antagonist. As new to action flicks, Abhimanyu Singh says learned a lot from Akshay and Rohit. The duo turned teachers for Abhimanyu as he told “Rohit sir taught me how to maintain my balance and posture after a jump. For a sequence, where I was supposed to cross a huge gap between two buildings with the help of a ladder, Akshay sir told me to remain calm and be confident. He doesn’t shy away from doing any kind of action, which inspired me a lot. Through the process, I’ve learned that it’s more about the right technique than anything else. Now I can say that I’m more fearless.”
