March 14 is director Rohit Shetty’s birthday. Rohit’s friend Akshay Kumar announced the release date of his first collaboration with Rohit Shetty on Twitter.
After repeated postponements Sooryavanshi is indeed releasing on April 30.
Confirming the same Shibashish Sarkar CEO Reliance entertainment the co-producers of Sooryavanshi, says, “A film is a director’s medium ….what better way than to celebrate Rohit’s birthday with the release date’s announcement of Sooryavanshi ! Hope audience will love and celebrate the film on 30th April when it releases.”
The will-it-won’t-it see-saw over the film’s release has been going on for the last three months ever since the lockdown lifted. April 2 was almost finalized for release. But then the Maharashtra government announced a partial lockdown in some parts of the State and the rel ease date for Sooryavanshi was again pushed forward.
Directed by the redoubtable Rohit Shetty whose Golmaal is the most successful Bollywood franchise of all times, Sooryavanshi , an action-packed cops-and-robbers drama brings together one of Bollywood’s most successful directors with Akshay Kumar for the first time. The two have shot the most dearth-defying jaw-dropping stunt scenes which, according to the film’s director, will go to waste on the home-viewing medium. For the film’s climactic hijinks the director has roped in Ajay Devgan and Ranveer Singh to join Akshay.
