Sooryavanshi, starring Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar, which was originally scheduled to release in March 2020, has been postponed indefinitely, owing to the ongoing pandemic. Considering Rohit Shetty is certain that he wants the film to hit the theatres, he didn’t opt for the digital route when most of the filmmakers were choosing the OTT platform. There had been reports that the film might release in the first half of 2021 but unfortunately, the film continues to be not released.
Amidst all the speculations, during the press conference of Khatron Ke Khiladi 11, Rohit Shetty spoke about the release of Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar’s cop drama. He was asked about the fate of the film, to which, he replied that 'most importantly we have to see when the theatres are ready to reopen'. He also mentioned that vaccinations are the need of the hour right now. Rohit thinks that one has to take all the necessary precautions as the situation is still the same.
Having said that, we recently reported that Rohit Shetty, Akshay Kumar, Reliance Entertainment and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions are planning to release the film in August. Given the theme of the film, makers think Independence Day is the perfect period to release the film.
Talking about KKK11, in the press con, Shetty even revealed Divyanka Tripathi, Vishal Aditya Singh and Arjun Bijlani surprised him during the stunt.
On Thursday, the makers of the stunt-based show held a press conference where all the contestants like Divyanka Tripathi, Nikki Tamboli, Arjun Bijlani, Sourabh Raaj Jain, Shweta Tiwari, Rahul Vaidya, Sana Khan Makbul, Varun Sood, Aastha Gill, Anushka Sen and more were seen attending the event with host Rohit Shetty.
