"Inshallah" and "Sooryavanshi" were all set to lock horns at the box office on Eid 2020 but now the Rohit Shetty directorial will arrive in theatres on March 27. "Sooryavanshi" producer Karan Johar shared the news on Twitter. "The ultimate Khiladi and the blockbuster director are arriving on 27th March, 2020 with #Sooryavanshi!

Salman also took to the microblogging site to confirm the news and shared his photo with Rohit. "I always thought of him as my younger brother and today he proves it...@itsrohitshetty. 'Sooryavanshi' releasing ?on 27th March, 2020?'," the "Bharat" star tweeted.
