While recent posters of Akshay Kumar in the khaki-clad police uniform confirms the making of Rohit Shetty’s fourth cop installment, Sooryavanshi, the upcoming project had long been hinted in Shetty’s last hit, Simmba. Moviegoers familiar with Simmba will see the Sooryavanshi circle come together with Akshay Kumar’s previous cameo as an ATS officer and now the recent confirmation for the making of the movie. While the lead as Akshay Kumar in Sooryavanshi is confirmed, there has been a cloud of confusion over which the lead actress should be. For the female cast which has not been officiated, Times Now reports that Akshay who has worked with Katrina in movies like Welcome, Tees Maar Khan, Singh Is King among others is reported to have wanted Kaif alongside him much to the disagreement of the filmmaker, Shetty.
While the female lead for the Rohit Shetty movie has not been made official, new reports by Pinkvilla also claims that Katrina will indeed be cast opposite Sooryavanshi despite Shetty having an eye for some other actress.
Pinkvilla also adds that Akshay is persistent on casting Kaif as the female lead suggesting some cold-shoulders between the two stars. For the movie, Akshay Kumar will be playing the role of the ATS Chief in the film which has already been hinted at the end of Simmba. Reports add that Akshay will soon begin the shooting for Sooryavanshi and the film will release on Eid 2020.
