In October, we had reported that the team of Sooryavanshi has been adding new characters to the story. Earlier, Rohit Shetty and writer Farhad Samji had added the tracks of Akshay Kumar’ father and mother when they were nearing the completion of the shoot.
Now, Rohit Shetty‘s upcoming cop drama Sooryavanshi, which introduces Akshay Kumar to his cop-verse has a new addition to the cast. The filmmaker has roped in Jackie Shroff to play a new character. In November 2019 actor Akshay Kumar had announced the wrap of the film. However, the team went on to shoot with character actors for another month before calling it a wrap.
Reportedly, Jackie Shroff shot for his scenes in the past week. Jackie’s addition came as a surprise to the team who filmed the senior actor’s scenes in Ooty. As per reports, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif were not part of the scenes. Jackie Shroff shot with Abhimanyu Singh who plays the antagonist in the film.
Sooryavanshi is slated to hit the screens in March. The climax of the film will see Ranveer Singh‘s Simmba and Ajay Devgn‘s Singham join hands with Akshay Kumar‘s Sooryavanshi to take down the goons.
