After Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar has become the latest celebrity to join filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s cop universe. Akshay is playing the lead role in Rohit’s next Sooryavanshi and the makers have now locked the film’s antagonist as well.
Akki will be seen locking horns with Abhimanyu Singh in the movie. Abhimanyu is playing the baddie and we hear that his character is ‘unpredictable and deadly.’ Rohit approached Abhimanyu after getting impressed with his performance in Tamil action-thriller Theeran. Abhimanyu is best known for his roles in Ram Leela, Mom and Jazbaa to name a few and he has already shot some portions with Akshay.
Akshay is playing ATS chief, Veer Sooryavanshi in the movie. After completing the Mumbai schedule, team Sooryavanshi will head to Bangkok to shoot Akshay’s introductory scenes. From there they will jet off to Hyderabad to shoot some important sequences at the Ramoji Studio and from there they will head to Goa.
Neena Gupta is playing Kumar’s mother in the film, while Katrina Kaif is playing his love interest. Produced by Shetty and Karan Johar, the film is slated to release on Eid 2020.
