Taking to their respective social media handles, the three hunks shared a video that opens to a bunch of kids waking up Ranveer with ’24th March’ written by a crayon on a paper. Shocked after waking up from his sleep due to their screaming, Ranveer gives his nod but asks them to ask “Singham sir”. In his office at the police station, Ajay meets the kids who present the same paper to him. Giving them his nod, Ajay tells the children to inform Sooryavanshi. Working out in his terrace gym, Akshay is walking on his hands when he lands with the paper and smiling nod in favour of the kids who run to hug him. The video then goes on to narrate how Mumbai theatres will be thrown open 24×7 from March 24 which has an added advantage since March 25th is an off for the festival of Gudi Padwa.

Catching fans by surprise one morning recently, Sooryavanshi director Rohit Shetty unveiled another character from his cop universe, Jackie Shroff. Hinting at another surprise in line, Rohit had instantly set fans on the edge with speculations which seem to have been answered now. The climax of Sooryavanshi has Akshay’s character teaming up with Ajay as Singham and Ranveer as Simmba to fight the villain.
Earlier, Rohit had created a stir online when he welcomed Hollywood stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as “videsi police” for the upcoming film Bad Boys For Life. Sharing a video on his Instagram account, Rohit introduced the Hollywood flick which even had glimpses of Sooryavanshi. The video featured a teaser of Sooryavanshi where Akshay as Veer Sooryavanshi, Ranveer as Sangram Bhalerao and Ajay as Bajirao Singham were seen as “desi cops”.
Akshay essays the role of Veer Sooryavanshi, a character introduced as an anti-terrorist squad officer in the 2018 Simmba, starring Ranveer Singh. The movie, which was scheduled to hit the screens on March 27, 2020 will now release on March 24 and also star Gulshan Grover and Sikander Kher in pivotal roles.
