We got a glimpse of Sooryavanshi towards the end of the Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba. With this film, Rohit Shetty added another character to his cop universe of Singham and Simmba, Sooryavanshi has Akshay Kumar in the title role.
Ever since the poster of the film came out, speculations were rife as to who the leading lady would be. Today all of that was put to rest when Katrina Kaif was announced as the heroine opposite Akshay Kumar.
Kumar took to Instagram to welcome Katrina to the team. The actor shared a photo featuring himself, Rohit, Katrina and Karan Johar. “Welcome to our COP UNIVERSE @katrinakaif …OUR SOORYAVANSHI GIRL!” read the photo’s caption.
Check out the photo below:
Sooryavanshi will mark Katrina's sixth film with Akshay Kumar. The two actors have a successful record at the box office and it will indeed be interesting to see this hit jodi in a Rohit Shetty film.
Sooryavanshi is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Shetty’s Rohit Shetty Picturez, Kumar’s Cape of Good Films, and Reliance Entertainment and is being slated to release around Eid next year.
