If reports to be believed then Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn will be making special appearances in Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi. The source related to the project quoted saying, “Yes, Rohit Shetty will be directing Akshay Kumar next. Given Shetty’s recent track record at the box office, it was obvious that other A-list actor would be lining up to sign him on as their director.”
The source further added, “The film will see Akshay Kumar playing the role of an ATS cop and is slated to go on floors in April next year with a release being slated for the last week of December. As of now the rest of the cast is yet to be locked.”
Asking about the cameos of Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn in Sooryavanshi. the source told Bollywood Hungama, “In Simmba Ajay Devgn made a special appearance in his Bajirao Singham avatar, while Ranveer Singh too played a cop. Now in Sooryavanshi, both Ranveer and Ajay will be making an appearance and it will not be surprising if they reprise their respective roles from Simmba and Singham”.
Reports are that the film Sooryavanshi is actually a remake of Malayalam blockbuster film Action Hero Biju starring Nivin Pauly. The film revolves around an ATS officer Biju Poulose.
