Ain't no time for crime 'coz Aa Rahi Hai Police!🚨🚔👊🏻 #Sooryavanshi releasing worldwide on 24th March. #SooryavanshiOn24thMarch @ajaydevgn @ranveersingh @katrinakaif @itsrohitshetty @karanjohar @reliance.entertainment @rohitshettypicturez @dharmamovies #CapeOfGoodFilms @pvrpictures @tseries.official
Capturing the auspicious occasion of Gudi Padwa and Ugadi, which follows the next day, and also marks the beginning of vacation for schools and colleges, Sooryavanshi is poised to enjoy a festive & summer break release period! Also, following Aditya Thackeray’s recent initiative, turning Mumbai 24x7, Sooryavanshi will be screened all night in theatres in Mumbai.
Talking about the initiative Aditya Thackeray shares, "Mumbai is a city that never sleeps. Mumbai is also the entertainment hub of India. I’m so glad that Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty are launching Sooryavanshi from the evening on the 24th of March. A hard-working city deserves more hours to chill and unwind.
That’s exactly the aim. 24 hours theatres will hopefully be a big boost to the industry and people. A film release that is in the evening, on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, to do with Mumbai Police and starring Akshay Kumar- a man committed to the cause of women's safety and fitness- what better than that."
Taking about the same Akshay Kumar shares, "What a moment in cinematic History in India...To be the first to present our film Sooryavanshi at what is now called 24x7 Mumbai is just the best way any filmy fanatic can spend Gudi Padwa. I wish this initiative was around when I was young, maybe I wouldn't have bunked off school so much."
Talking about the same Rohit Shetty shares, ''We are also excited to take forward, Aditya Thackeray’s initiated Mumbai 24x7 and releasing Sooryavanshi on the evening of the 24th March which will run all night in Mumbai.”.
In Sooryavanshi, Akshay Kumar is essaying the role of an ATS officer Veer Sooryavanshi. The film will be jointly produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez, Cape Of Good Films and Dharma Productions. The film is produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Rohit Shetty.
