One of the most anticipated movies- Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif has been delayed for over a year. Sooryavanshi release date was previously finalised to in March 2020, but it got pushed ahead to June 2020 and then, Sooryavanshi release date was finalized as 30 April 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sooryavanshi release date has been postponed three times already. At the press conference of Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 on Thursday, July 8, the director was asked about the release of Sooryavanshi and he said it all depends on theatres. Rohit Shetty said, “The question is when will theatres open up?”
He further added that the most important thing is vaccinating the people and when that will happen then everything is likely to open up.
Shetty further added, “It is very important for the work to begin. However, it is important we take care of our loved ones and colleagues and become responsible, it is just a matter of a few months as the vaccination drive is also happening in full swing in our country. It is good that things are opening up. But at the same time, we shouldn’t get excited because then everything will shut down again. We need to be careful about all this especially after the second wave.”
Sooryavanshi traces the acts and serious antics of DCP Veer Sooryavanshi, the chief of the Anti-Terrorism Squad in India.
