Rohit Shetty: Ranveer Singh as Simmba was a brat, Akshay Kumar is a stylized cop in Sooryavanshi

Rohit Shetty has given Bollywood what no other director has given and that being, a cop universe- Singham, Simmba and the upcoming Sooryavanshi. After the stupendous success of Ranveer Singh- Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba, the daredevil director, Rohit Shetty has started filming his next film with Akshay Kumar. There’d be hardly anyone who doesn’t like to watch Rohit Shetty kind of cinema- full on action, comedy and romance and after Simmba, fans can’t wait to see Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty come together for the first time to unveil their magic on-screen.

A few days back, Pinkvilla had exclusively learnt that Sooryavanshi will be set in the 1990s and the film will trace how Akshay becomes Sooryavanshi. Talking about Simmba and Sooryavanshi, Rohit Shetty informed Mid-Day, “Akshay's Sooryavanshi is entirely different from Singham or Simmba. He doesn't wear a uniform and is very stylised. [In sharp contrast], Simmba was a brat. Sooryavanshi's department too is showcased differently. Also, while Singham fought corruption, Sooryavanshi deals with terrorism. So, the individual traits of these characters will give us enough [to play with as a whole unit].”

It was during the end of Simmba that director Rohit Shetty gave us a glimpse of Akshay Kumar as ATS Chief Veer Sooryavanshi, and since then, fans have been eagerly waiting to watch Akshay Kumar as a cop. A few days back, the makers of Sooryavanshi announced that Katrina Kaif has been roped in to romance Akshay in the film. Now, according to latest reports, the shooting of the film will kick-start in Mumbai. That’s right! After Mumbai, the cast and crew of Sooryavanshi will head to Bangkok and Goa.
