As Akshay Kumar gets set to play a gritty no-nonsense cop in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi there is a blizzard of buzz surrounding this eagerly-awaited project. Apparently, Akshay wants his cop-actioner with Rohit Shetty to be very different from Ajay Devgn’s Singham and Ranveer Singh’s Simmba both of which were cop dramas and huge hits at the box office.
At the same time Rohit Shetty would like all his cop-franchise films (Singham with Ajay Devgan, Simmba with Ranveer Singh and now Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar) to be seen as being part of one universe.
So there is talk of Ranveer Singh joining Akshay at some point in the storytelling of Sooryavanshi. It is to be noted here that Ranveer is a big Akshay Kumar fan. There is pictorial evidence of this admiration when as a child Ranveer had visited the sets of one of Akshay’s film. Akshay won the boy’s heart with his warmth.
Doing a film with his idol would be a dream-come-true for Ranveer. And it could happen sooner rather than later. Provided Ranveer makes his cameo appearance in Sooryvanshi. Ever since Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh appeared together on Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee with Karan in the last season, their guru-chela camaraderie has been much-discussed. Maybe it’s time now to explore that camaraderie on the big screen.
We think it will be fantastic to see Ranveer’s exuberance and Akshay’s charm work its magic on the big screen. With Rohit Shetty at the helm, this is one film that has ‘blockbuster’ written all over it!
