Akshay Kumar's "Sooryavanshi" will hit screens on March 24 now. The film was earlier scheduled to release on March 27, but the makers have now decided to release the film three days early.
Ranveer Singh took to social media to announce the news. He wrote, "Ain't no time for crime 'coz Aa Rahi Hai Police! #Sooryavanshi releasing worldwide on 24th March. #SooryavanshiOn24thMarch. Trailer out on 2nd March, 2020."
Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar also shared the video on their social media handles.
In the video released by the makers to announce the change in release date of the film, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn are seen getting ready for March 24. Akshay Kumar also features in the promotional video.
The release date of "Sooryavanshi" is changed because of a number of reasons. Come March 24, all the theatres in Mumbai will remain open 24/7. Maharashtriya government recently approved the proposal of opening retail outlets 24/7 in order to boost the state economy. And also March 25 marks Gudi Padwa, an important Maharashtriyan festival. The makers thought of cashing on this and, thus, are releasing the film on a Tuesday instead of the coming Friday.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, the film is the fourth film in the director's cop universe. While in Singham and Singham Returns, Ajay Devgn was seen donning the police uniform, in "Simmba", Ranveer Singh played a jovial police officer. In "Sooryavanshi", Akshay Kumar will be seen rescuing people wearing khaki.
Jackie Shroff will be seen playing an important role in "Sooryanvanshi". Earlier, Rohit Shetty took to social media to announce Jackie's association with the film. Sharing a picture of himself with the actor, he wrote, "Just when you thought you knew all the characters of Our Cop Universe...Presenting to you. The Man Himself...JACKIE SHROFF... And...Surprise Abhi bhi baaki hai mere Dost."
Apart from Akshay, the film also stars Katrina Kaif in a pivotal role.
