Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar are reuniting onscreen after a gap of nine years in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming cop drama Sooryavanshi. Katrina achieved great Bollywood success playing the female lead opposite Akshay in several films previously. Now, when she signed Sooryavanshi she was worried that it would take time to be comfortable with Akshay on the film sets after such a long time gap. However, the actress’ worries were ill-founded as Akshay and she gelled right from the first take and were back with their camaraderie of previous years.
In an interview with an entertainment website, Katrina was asked whether she is excited about collaborating with her old co-star Akshay. Katrina revealed that she was excited to reunite with Akshay but was apprehensive. She said, “I'm really excited. We have already shot a few days for Sooryavanshi. I really thought, 'What's it going to be like? There's going to be this uncomfortable...finding this comfort on set...because we are working together after nine years. It's a really long time.' But from the first 'action', I was like, 'Oh, okay, it's fine!' We still have that ease from the way that we worked together and he is a great co-star. I'm really enjoying on set with him.”
Super excited to join the team of sooryavanshi with the incredible @itsrohitshetty for the first time , cant wait to be back on set with @akshaykumar after soooooo long and the inimitable @karanjohar @reliance.entertainment @rohitshettypicturez @dharmamovies #CapeOfGoodFilms
Sooryavanshi is the first collaboration of Akshay and Rohit. The film was announced as an Easter egg in Ranveer Singh’s film Simmba with a surprise entry by Akshay at the end. He is playing the role of Veer Sooryavanshi, chief of the Anti-Terrorism Squad and it is hinted that Ajay Devgn's Bajirao Singham and Ranveer Singh's Sangram Bhalerao aka Simmba could also be a part of the film.
