Rohit Shetty is coming up with another exciting cop drama titled Sooryavanshi which stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role. He made the announcement of the film in an interesting way in Ranveer Singh's Simmba last year, which was also a police drama. The director recently announced that the film's leading heroine will be Katrina Kaif.

While talking to PTI, the Golmaal director revealed why Katrina Kaif is an apt choice for his film. Rohit Shetty said, "Katrina has a very good role in the film. We both have been trying to work with each together on a film but this seemed like an apt film for both of us."

With films like Singham, Simmba and now Sooryavanshi, Rohit revealed that he wants to expand his desi cop universe. About the same, he said, "After making Singham franchise, we thought of expanding the cop universe and that’s how Simmba happened. For the first time, we had merged two worlds — Simmba and Singham and had also added a new element with Sooryavanshi. It was a big risk but it worked."

The filmmaker revealed that his cop universe will also have female cops and it will grow with time.

She is a FABULOUS actor.
So she deserved being a part of this FABULOUS movie.
No doubts in that.

or you can just say the truth: that you've been forced to cast her

Good role like 10 mins with one vulgar item song.

Liar. He wasnt keen to cast Katrina. It was Katrina's ex Akshay who forced him to. No one can say no to him after all he is a guarantee hit.

Because she’s a superstar that’s why :) love these two together!!

she can’t act and rohit’s films don’t even need acting so he cast her

oh yay that why he took rs and sara in his previous movie and srk and kajol in another previous movie, none of them knows acting and they didnt act in the movie

DON'T you dare say anything about SRK
Otherwise I'll SUE you.

After this make a film on all three together. Singha, simmbaa n sooryavanshi. N make a cameo of chulbul Pandey.

Akshay and salman

The same scenario for every movie that Kat in. Even Aamir said Kat has a good role before Thug which she was just an item dancer.

Akshay forced you to cast his ex Katrina.

You cast her because of Salman Khan.
