One film that has become the talk of the tinsel town since the time it was announced, it is Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi. Another cop drama in Rohit Shetty’s police universe, Sooryavanshi first gave his glimpse in December 2018’s Ranveer Singh’s Simmba in the end. Now, the film’s other cast has also been finalised and it is a known fact that Katrina Kaif will be playing Akshay Kumar’s wife in Sooryavanshi. Also, the film’s shoot is scheduled to start this month. Amid all this buzz, Akshay Kumar’s mother in the film will be played by Badhaai Ho actor, Neena Gupta. 

Yes, the Badhaai Ho actor has come on board to play Akshay aka Sooryavanshi’s mom in the film and is extremely excited to be a part of Rohit Shetty’s film. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Neena Gupta spoke about her role in the film and mentioned that it isn’t the role of the conventional mother and the equation between Akshay, Katrina and her would be new and unique. Neena even praised Rohit Shetty and his films and mentioned that she was excited to be on board.

Neena Gupta said, “This is an interesting role because it isn’t the stereotypical mother who asks his son about food, marriage etc., but has several dimensions. There is a new temperament to the mother, and you will get to see a very different dynamic between Akshay, Katrina and me. This is a new, sweet and interesting space that I am looking to explore. I am happy that more people will get to see my work. Rohit has made some amazing films which have been appreciated by the audience.”
