Sooryavanshi director Rohit Shetty reveals why he took Katrina Kaif as the lead opposite Akshay Kumar
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.
