After Singham and Simmba, blockbuster director Rohit Shetty is extending his cop franchise with Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi. The filmmaker had hinted about his upcoming venture with Mr Khiladi, where the actor will play the character of ATS (Anti Terrorist Squad) chief Veer Sooryavanshi. The film was earlier supposed to hit the screens in December this year but the makers announced the new release date, which is Eid 2020.
Recently, Shetty had headed to Goa to kickstart the first schedule of the shooting along with his crew. He had taken to Instagram and shared the picture along with his team on Instagram and captioned it, "Mission SOORYAVANSHI En route Goa".
Now, while that's enough to pin hopes, we can't hide our excitement for the masala cop-actioner as Akshay Kumar will reunite with Katrina Kaif. Needless to say, it is surely great news for all the Khiladi and Katrina Kaif fans as their favourite onscreen pair will reunite after 9 long years. The duo have worked together in hits like Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Namastey London, Tees Maar Khan, De Dana Dan, Blue, Singh Is King and Welcome and have garnered praises for their crackling chemistry.
