While it had been confirmed that Katrina Kaif was going to star opposite Akshay Kumar in Sooryavanshi, there wasn’t much clarity on what exactly she would play. Now, director Rohit Shetty has confirmed that the actor will play the role of a doctor in the film.
Rohit, on a recent turn on No Filter Neha, revealed that Katrina plays a doctor to Akshay's cop in his next, Sooryavanshi.
Rohit also likened his leading lady with a quiz master, saying, “She asks a lot of questions...Is this okay, is this right?’’ I tell her that she’s beautiful, but after a point, I just switch off.” The filmmaker’s candour extended to his filmography, when he shared that he sets the bar high in terms of box-office collections. “People say that I make commercial films and that I’m a money-spinner but ever since I turned producer, I’ve realised that I’d have incurred huge losses if my films hadn’t crossed the Rs 150 crore mark,” he explained. His sole concern while making a film is the audience. “From the first day of scripting to the night before the film’s release, my team knows that I can change anything, so they are always on their toes,” Rohit said.
This is Katrina’s first collaboration with Rohit Shetty. Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar will be reuniting after nine years since their last film Tees Maar Khan.
Sooryavanshi stars Akshay as ATS Chief Veer Sooryavanshi and is scheduled for a March 27, 2020 release. Sooryavanshi is being produced by Reliance Entertainment and Rohit Shetty Picturez in association with Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films.
