Rohit Shetty announces the release date of ‘Sooryavanshi’ as cinemas in Maharashtra to reopen; see post
Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty announced their maiden collaboration ‘Sooryavanshi’ in the coolest way possible. In the end credits of ‘Simmba’, the actor made an appearance as the eponymous cop and it was clear a cop universe was on the verge of being created for blockbuster results. This actioner was slated to release on March 25, 2020, but the Coronavirus pandemic played spoilsport.
The director has now, after a long wait, announced the release date of this film. Sharing a picture with the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and thanking him to allow cinemas to reopen from October 22 in the state, he stated his directorial will release on the occasion of Diwali.

Asked if there was a concern about the content of the film going stale as they wait for the situation to return to normal, Shetty said thanks to the subject of the movie and the way it has been shot, `Sooryavanshi` will “never look old”. “I never believe content will become old or something like that where my film is concerned. We had a promo out. There have been films that were shot and ready for three years and are all waiting… In the meantime, I have a film that is ready, I will start with the editing of `Cirkus` now. I am not thinking that the film will look stale, that will not happen for sure,” the director told PTI in an interview.
`Sooryavanshi` is the fourth film in Shetty`s cop universe after Ajay Devgn-starrer `Singham`, `Singham Returns` and `Simmba`, starring Ranveer Singh. The film is presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez in association with Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films.
While it is a “challenge” to hold a film for a long time, the release of `Sooryavanshi` depends on when the theatres will resume operations, the director said. “We don`t know when theatres will open and if they do, we don`t know in what capacity. Earlier last year there was a hope it started in January.. I don`t see when the theatres will open now. Because everybody is predicting the third wave. Last time when the authorities predicted the second wave people took it lightly and I don`t think the third wave if it all is coming should be taken lightly,” Shetty cautioned.
