Sooryavanshi first look: Akshay Kumar joins the Anti-Terrorism Squad in Rohit Shetty’s next cop drama
The makers of actor Akshay Kumar and director Rohit Shetty’s next project, Sooryavanshi, have shared the film’s first look picture on Twitter. The still looks more serious than any Rohit Shetty film that we have seen so far.
“Unsung. Unafraid. Unflappable. Anti Terrorism Squad at work! #Sooryavanshi,” Reliance Entertainment wrote in their tweet. The photo shows Akshay lead a small group of men down a hotel lobby. Akshay is seen in black T-shirt and khaki pants and the men behind him are also dressed similarly in T-shirts and jeans.
Fans also showered the first look with positive comments. “Gazab gazab gazab. Most exciting project for me,” wrote one. “Akshay sir looks real police officer so fit #Sooryavanshi will be all time biggest blockbuster,” wrote another.
Sooryavanshi’s shoot began on May 5. Akshay shared a picture of himself, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn sitting with the clapper board of their films Simmba, Singham, Singham Returns and Sooryavanshi. They portrayed the characters of special cops in the film. Earlier, the makers of the film roped in Katrina Kaif as the “Sooryavanshi Girl”.
In March, the makers of the film shared the first look of the film and revealed that the flick would release on Eid in 2020. In the poster, Akshay was seen as a police officer with a revolver in his hand. His entry was teased in the climax of Simmba as the Anti-Terror Squad chief.
Badhaai Ho actor Neena Gupta will play Akshay’s mother in the film. “I am feeling good and I’m very excited mainly because this kind of big commercial cinema is seen by a lot of people. Every actor wants to be seen by more people and appreciated by more people,” Neena told PTI.
There were reports that though she would be seen playing mother to Akshay, her role won’t be typical. The actor, however, didn’t comment on her role. “I’ve told myself to work hard on it because a lot of people are going to see it. I am going to put my best in it,” she added.
