Rohit Shetty knows to grab headlines. The maker of Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead is garnering great interest. News has come in that talented actor Neena Gupta has been roped in. She is to play the role of Akshay Kumar’s mother.
If Neena Gupta has accepted the role, one can rest assured that there is more to this mother than the usual teary, ever forgiving and indulgent mother that Hindi movies keep churning out. She will bring in her own dimension to the role and it will surely be worth watching out for.
The director is continuing with his cop series and Sooryavanshi will be the fourth for him. First came Simmba with Ranveer Singh; then came Singam and Singam Returns with Ajay Devgn and now Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar!
This will be the first time that Rohit Shettywill be directing Katrina. In another first, Katrina will be working with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions for the first time too.
Katrina and Akshay are teaming up after a long gap. They were last seen together in Tees Maar Khan in 2010. Sooryavanshi’s release date is yet to be announced.
