Katrina and Rohit Shetty also retweeted the video of Ranveer, Ajay and Akshay announcing the opening up of cinemas with ‘Sooryavanshi’. Katrina wrote, “18 months have passed since our entire entertainment industry including film & stage has been on a standstill due to the pandemic. It’s been a long difficult wait for us but finally patience prevailed and we are back! Now it’s not about just our film but it’s about our industry as a family and the relationship we share with our beloved audience! So let’s come together for the magic of cinema!”
To note, a few weeks back, director Rohit Shetty along with several industry folks met with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray requesting him to reopen cinemas in Maharashtra. After the meeting, the reopening of theatres was announced from October 22, soon after which the filmmakers began announcing release dates of their films and Akshay locked the Diwali date for his next ‘Sooryavanshi’.
Helmed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Sooryavanshi’ is a cop drama starring Akshay in the lead and Katrina Kaif essaying the leading lady. The film was initially scheduled to hit the screens in March 2020, just when the Coronavirus pandemic struck India and the country went into lockdown.
