Rohit Shetty's directorial Simmba starring Ranveer Singh is still soaring high on the success. This Bolly-masala movie had all the elements that took the audience on a joy ride. Other than Ranveer Power-packed performance, film’s foot-thumping music and Ajay Devgn’s cameo, what grabbed our eyeballs was Khiladi Akshay Kumar’s stint in the movie as a handsome cop, Veer Sooryavanshi. The name of Akshay Kumar’s character seems inspired by Salman Khan’s flicks- Veer and Suryavanshi.
For Sooryavanshi, Rohit Shetty will be collaborating with Akshay Kumar for the first time. Akshay will play the role of a rebellious ATS (Anti Terrorist Squad) officer in the movie.
Still garnering positive response for his movie, Rohit Shetty is gearing up to begin work on Sooryanvashi. The movie will reportedly hit floors in April.
While Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba, has made more than Rs 159 crore in a few days of release, there’s another feather added to director Rohit Shetty’s cap. With Simmba, Rohit Shetty becomes the first director in the history of Bollywood cinema to deliver eight back-to-back films to have made more than Rs 100 crore at the domestic box office.
Rohit Shetty’s blockbuster hits include Golmaal 3, Singham, Bol Bachchan, Chennai Express, Singham Returns, Dilwale, Golmaal Again and Simmba.
