Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif to play man and wife for Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi 9 years after Tees Maar Khan
At times, when two big Bollywood stars have been paired opposite each other in various films, their on-screen chemistry transcends into off-screen friendship. This friendship ends up attracting more projects together. Speaking of this, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have worked in several films together including Namastey London, Singh is Kinng and Tees Maar Khan. Now, nine years later, the two have signed on a film together and its Rohit Shetty’s highly anticipated flick Sooryavanshi. The two announced the same this morning.
Post the announcement, speculations were rife that Katrina plays Akshay’s love interest in the film. However, in a report by Mid-Day, Rohit Shetty’s team confirmed that Katrina will be a part of the film and will be seen playing the role of the ATS cop’s wife. The report also stated that Katrina will be an important pillar of support for her hubby Akshay Kumar aka Sooryavanshi who will be seen as a daring cop in Rohit Shetty’s action movie. The film is based on real-life stories of the ATS.
The Mid-Day report also stated the reason why there was a lot of denial of Katrina’s association with the film. As per the report, “Akshay has always suggested Katrina for his movies, but she would turn them down because she was searching for a strong role. As Akshay's wife in this film, she will play a vital part; a pillar of strength as he fights corruption”.
As per the report, the duo Akshay and Katrina have shot for the posters of the film. Dialogues of the film will be written by Farhad Samji and the script session has been concluded in Goa. This film will mark the reunion of Akshay and Katrina post the 2010 film Tees Maar Khan by Farah Khan. Sooryavanshi is slated to release on Eid 2020 and will most likely be clashing with Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt’s Inshallah.
