Sooryavanshi is the fourth film of Rohit’s cop drama universe in which Akshay is essaying the role of Veer Suryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an anti-terrorist squad officer in the Ranveer Singh-starrer 2018 film Simmba.
Inshallah which marks the reunion of Bhansali and Salman after a long time, is an epic romance drama. It also features Alia Bhatt.
