Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ to release on Republic Day 2021?
Reportedly, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer 'Sooryavanshi' will be released next year on Republic Day.
Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif’s Sooryavanshi is one of the most anticipated films. The film was said to be released on March 24, 2020, but was pushed ahead due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Now, reportedly, the makers of the film are eyeing Republic Day 2021 release, despite cinemas re-opening on 15 October.
According to a report in Mid-Day, “The makers feel it will be an ideal time to release the film, given its theme of patriotism and anti-terrorism. While the current crisis will hopefully be under control by then, the Katrina Kaif-starrer will additionally enjoy the benefit of being the first big release of 2021. The team is currently working out the logistics.”
Earlier, Sooryavanshi and 83 were said to release on March 24 and April 10 respectively, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it got postponed, Shibasish Sarkar, CEO, Reliance Entertainment, co-producer of 83 and Sooryavanshi, in an interview, with Mumbai Mirror said, “We definitely don’t want to change the date of 83 for Sooryavanshi. The sports drama is still slated to release on Christmas. We have to decide on the new date of Sooryavanshi with the director and actor, but the film should release between January and March.”
Sooryavanshi is the fourth installment in Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, after Ranveer Singh’s Simmba, Ajay Devgn’s Singham. The movie will have cameos by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh and will also star Gulshan Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sikandar Kher and Javed Jaffrey. However, the official announcement is yet to be made by the makers.
