The festival of Eid has become synonymous with Salman Khan’s movie release. But in year 2020 it won’t be Salman Khan who will grace the big-screen during the auspicious festival of Eid but Akshay Kumar. The team of Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’, the third installment in Rohit Shetty's cop franchise, would release during Eid of 2020.
"From #RohitShetty’s Police universe, get ready for the fire-packed #Sooryavanshi, releasing on Eid 2020! @karanjohar @RelianceEnt @RSPicturez @DharmaMovies #CapeOfGoodFilms," Akshay Kumar shared on Twitter along with the first poster of the film.
Interestingly Ajay Devgn also shared the poster on his Twitter handle writing, "A Bullet for a Bullet... He’s not alone... #Sooryavanshi @akshaykumar #RohitShetty @karanjohar @RelianceEnt @RSPicturez @DharmaMovies #CapeOfGoodFilms".
For the uninitiated, Ajay Devgn was part of the first cop franchise i.e. Singham. He also had a small but powerful cameo in the second instalment ‘Simmba’ that starred Ranveer Singh as a dirty cop turned good.
Earlier, Rohit had tweeted that the pre-production on Sooryavanshi has begun. “Mission Sooryavanshi. En route Goa,” Rohit wrote alongside a picture, which showed him posing with his team in the jet bridge. Ranveer wrote in the comments section, “Oho hard company. Picture shuru.”
The three actors – Ajay, Akshay and Ranveer – have often been spotted together and have spoken about the cop universe – a first of a kind for Hindi film industry. While Singham is a profitable franchise, Simmba has become one of the biggest hits of 2018 and made records for both Rohit and Ranveer.
Coincidentally, a film with the same title, Sooryavanshi, was released in 1992 and featured Salman Khan in the lead role. The fantasy horror film was produced by Vijay Galani.
