In December 2018, at the climax of his Simmba movie, Rohit Shetty introduced Akshay Kumar as the newest participant in his police universe. Akshay Kumar will play the title character in the movie Sooryavanshi by Rohit Shetty. The film hit the ground in May of this year. The film was shot extensively in Mumbai, Bangkok and Hyderabad.
Akshay Kumar, the success of Mission Mangal behind him and the excitement of Housefull 4 before him, is using this interim period to film the climax of Rohit Shetty’s police drama, Sooryavanshi, in the Ramoji Cinema City of Hyderabad. It will be an exciting 15-day program starting this week, sources from PeepingMoon.com have learned. Joining Akshay for Sooryavanshi’s action-packed high point will be Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh, who will play police officers Bajirao Singham and Bhalerao Sangram in the action dramas of the police universe of Rohit Singham and Simmba respectively. Together with Veer Sooryavanshi, who is Akshay’s character as the head of the Anti-Terror Squad in the movie, they become the enemy of all evil.
Sooryavanshi has been in the news since Simmba was launched last December and it was learned that Rohit was now pairing with Akshay for his next film in the police universe. This is the first time that the filmmaker known for doing exaggerated action extravagances with many car and bicycle chases, exciting fighting scenes and exciting stunts is pairing with actor Khiladi. Akshay also joined as co-producer with Rohit, Dharma Productions of Karan Johar and Reliance Entertainment for Sooryavanshi. After filming the climax sequence, the film will go into postproduction and prepare for release on March 27, 2020. But before that, Akshay will have Housefull 4 and Good Newwz.
In addition to Akshay’s reckless action and acrobatics, the actor’s fans are delighted that Rohit obtained rights to the 1994 Tip Tip Barsa Paani de Mohra swinging rain for Sooryavanshi. This sensual number was filmed with Akshay and Katrina Kaif. The original had Akshay frolicking in the rain with the sensual Raveena Tandon and was one of Mohra’s most successful and popular songs after Tu Cheez Badi Has Mast Mast. Fans remember how seductive Raveena looked in her yellow sari while Akshay loved her in the rain in Mohra. Rohit, who has an established pattern for his films, has thrown the beautiful Katrina in a yellow chiffon sari for her version because Raveena granted her the status of fantasy 25 years ago that is still copied by Bollywood.
Produced by Rohit, Karan Johar, Akshay and Shibasish Sarkar, the film also marks a meeting for Akshay and Katrina Kaif almost a decade after Tees Maar Khan. He also introduces Neena Gupta as Akshay’s mother with the actress who promises that her character is a departure from the stereotypical maa screen. There are multiple antagonists, including Nikitin Dheer, Gulshan Grover and Abhimanyu Singh, as the film takes place in the context of terrorism in India. The premiere of the film is scheduled for March 2020.
