Sooryavanshi has been well-received by cine-lovers. It was supposed to release in theatres on March 27 last year but the makers had postponed the film’s release due to the coronavirus pandemic. The next release date – April 30, 2021 – was also changed after a surge in COVID cases earlier this year.
The Rohit Shetty-directed film is the fourth instalment in his cop universe. The first two – Singham series – featured Ajay Devgn while the third film titled Simmba starred Ranveer Singh in the lead role. Akshay Kumar’s character Veer Suryavanshi was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in Simmba.
Both Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh have cameo roles in Sooryavanshi.
