Akshay Kumar took to social media early on Tuesday to reveal two first-look posters of his forthcoming film Sooryavanshi, which is slated to release on Eid 2020.
Sharing the posters in a series of tweets, he wrote, â€œA bullet for a bullet! Get ready for #RohitShettyâ€™s #Sooryavanshi 🔥 on Eid 2020. Action-packed, masala intact!â€

Notably, this will be the first time in a while that a film that does not have Salman Khan will release on Eid, which is known to be Khanâ€™s favourite release window. In fact, he will be releasing his upcoming film Bharat this Eid too. Also starring Katrina Kaif in the lead, itâ€™s been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Though Khan hasnâ€™t announced any release for Eid 2020 yet, now that Kumar has booked the festive date, it is most likely that Khan will not want to open on the same day.
Meanwhile, directed by Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in his cop-universe after Simmba and the two super-hit Singham films.
Hopeful after Simmbaâ€™s roaring box-office success, Karan Joharâ€™s Dharma Productions, which had backed the Ranveer Singh film, will also be co-producing Sooryavanshi along with Rohit Shetty Picturez. The filmâ€™s female lead is yet to be announced.
However, considering that Kumar has an action-packed year ahead with four films at various stages of productionâ€”Kesari, Housefull 4, Mission Mangal and Good Newsâ€”he may not begin filming Sooryavanshi anytime soon.
