It all started when Rohit Shetty was talking about the climax scene starring Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif. “You have to watch the take thrice. The scene with the blast has Katrina (Kaif) too. If you look closely, she is blinking (during it). After the fourth take, she came to me and asked: Can we take one more? And I said, ‘Katrina, I will tell you honestly, no one is going to look at you.’ She got so wild. She said, ‘how could you tell me this?’ and I said: Three guys are walking with blasts happening behind, nobody will notice you. And I kept that shot. In the promo, she blinks while walking. But kaun dekhega? said Rohit Shetty.
Starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles, Sooryavanshi is an action drama and is the fourth instalment of Rohit Shetty’s cop universe. The film has been backed by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions and is slated to hit the big screens on March 24 this year.
