Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty Teaming up For First Time in New Film

Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty are teaming up for the first time. Another cop franchise from the Singham and Simmba director, the new film, titled Sooryavanshi, will feature the megastar Akshay Kumar as an ATS (Anti-Terrorist Squad) officer. Glimpses of his character have already been seen in the end credits of the Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba and the blockbuster director also announced that the action drama will release later this year. Before starting filming for Sooryavanshi, Kumar has pending shoots for two other films — Mission Mangal and Good News. Filming for the super cop action-drama Sooryavanshi is likely to commence this year. Both Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar are known to finish their projects in record time. So, it won't be surprising if their maiden collaboration is also ready in time for release later this year. Akshay Kumar will be next seen in Kesari in March. He also has the fourth installment of comedy franchise Housefull in the pipeline.
