Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is confident his upcoming cop drama "Sooryavanshi", which stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, but he says he never tries to cash on his brand image. "Sooryavanshi" is the next instalment in Rohit Shetty's cop drama universe. It is slated to hit theatres in March. According to an IMDb finding released recently, "Sooryavanshi" is became the most anticipated Indian movie of 2020.
"I think what we are happy about is the expectation with what people will come to the theatre. Many times people try to cash on the brand. 'Sooryavanshi' or for any other films for that matter... We never tried to cash on the brand. We have worked hard," Rohit said.
"When people will come with expectation that 'Sooryavanshi' will be larger than life, there will be action and chemistry between these guys... Everything is there in the film. I am pretty confident about that. Whether they like the film or not, it is a different story. If you are coming in with family with tub of popcorn (expecting) action and all the stuff you want from 'Sooryavanshi', then that is there in the film," he added.
In the film, Akshay plays the title role of Sooryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an anti-terrorist squad officer as a cameo character in the Ranveer Singh-starrer "Simmba".
Katrina Kaif will be seen as Akshay's love interest. The film also features Neena Gupta, Gulshan Grover and Sikander Kher.
