At last, Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi will release in theatres on Diwali this year. The exact date of release is yet to be announced. After attending a meeting with the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray, Rohit shared that the cop drama is finally making it to the big screen after almost 18 months of delay. Akshay, who plays the titular role in Sooryavanshi, shared a BTS picture with Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Rohit.
In the picture, Ranveer can be seen seated on a desk whereas Akshay and Ajay are standing with Rohit. As per the filmmaker's cop universe, Ranveer a.k.a Simmba is 'Singham' Ajay and 'Sooryavanshi' Akshay's subordinate. Soon after the picture went viral, an IPS officer pointed out that in the police force, subordinates can't be seated when their seniors are standing. He tweeted, "Inspector sahab baithe hai (tan kar) aur SP Sahab khade, aise nahi hota hai janab."
So many families would be thanking Sh Uddhav Thackeray today! Grateful for allowing the reopening of cinema halls in Maharashtra from Oct 22. Ab kisi ke roke na rukegi - AA RAHI HAI POLICE #Sooryavanshi #Diwali2021 #RohitShetty @ajaydevgn @RanveerOfficial #KatrinaKaif pic.twitter.com/xJqUuh2pMT
