Shetty had introduced Akshay Kumar in his cop universe in the last scene of his last release. He is at present busy with the shoot in Bangkok.
A day back Rohit Shetty had teased fans with a couple of videos of a stunt. We now have Akshay Kumar performing the high chase bike stunt in the streets of Bangkok.

It takes real fathers to transform their boys into heroes. Started doing stunts at the age of 16, still going strong at 45 And I know one man who will always be proud of me in Heaven My Guru, My Father – Veeru Devgan Two most important lessons he taught me: 1. Be honest with your work and work will be honest with you. 2. Before performing any stunt the most important thing is – SAFETY FIRST. (On Location…Bangkok… Stunt Rehearsals before Akshay performs the actual shot…#sooryavanshi) PS: Please do not try this stunt. All the drivers in the cars are stunt Professionals and the stunts are performed in a controlled environment.
Akshay got quite nostalgic after shooting in Thailand. He had begun his career in Bangkok by working in a restaurant as a chef and waiter, to support himself.
Akshay Kumar said,” I always have a lot of fun doing my own stunts. Rohit is anyway a class apart when it comes to action in his films. And doing these bike stunts on the streets of Bangkok was extra special. Many years back I would ride a bike in Bangkok to deliver food. Now I am doing the same all over again, to earn my food (laughs).”
Sooryavanshi revolves around the life of an ATS chief whose wife’s role is played by Katrina Kaif. The film also stars Neena Gupta as Akshay’s mother.
Sooryavanshi is slated to release on May 21, 2020.
