Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is expanding his cop universe with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif-starrer Sooryavanshi, and the director of super hit action films says that his latest action drama, Sooryavanshi, will be very different from his previous cop films--Simmba (2018) and Singham (2011)- in tone, setting and character.
Speaking to Mid-Day about the upcoming film, Shetty said, "Akshay's Sooryavanshi is entirely different from Singham or Simmba. He doesn't wear a uniform and is very stylised. [In sharp contrast], Simmba was a brat. Sooryavanshi's department too is showcased differently. Also, while Singham fought corruption, Sooryavanshi deals with terrorism. So, the individual traits of these characters will give us enough (to play with as a whole unit).”
Recently, it was announced that Sooryavanshi will have Nikitin Dheer as an antagonist. Before that, Abhimanyu Singh was also roped in to play a negative role in Shetty's directorial.
Sooryavanshi is the third film in Shetty's cop universe after Ajay Devgn-fronted Singham and Ranveer Singh's Simmba. The film, to be released on Eid 2020, also features Neena Gupta in a pivotal role.
Dharma Productions gave us a glimpse of Kumar as ATS Chief Veer Sooryavanshi in a behind the scenes still from the film. According to reports, Sooryavanshi will be shot in Mumbai, Goa and Bangkok.
