Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray made the big announcement of opening theatres and cinema halls across the state from October 22 on September 25 after meeting filmmakers Rohit Shetty, Jayantilal Gada and a team of theatre owners. Without wasting any time, Rohit announced his highly-anticipated film Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead to release finally in theatres. Now, the film which is all set to welcome the audience back into theatres has received the censor certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with a U/A certification.
The film has been awarded a U/A certificate and has been passed by CBFC with zero cuts. The certificate was handed over to the makers today. The film's duration as mentioned on the censor certificate, is 145 minutes that is 2 hours 25 minutes making it a shorter film than all of Rohit's recent releases.

An online portal quoted a trade expert who said, "This is an ideal run time. The multiplexes will be able to add a sufficient number of shows in a day per screen and yet accommodate the cleaning and sanitization process that has been mandated by the government for the safety of the moviegoers between shows.”
Sooryavanshi belongs to the cop universe of Rohit and takes his Singham and Simmba films further. Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn will also feature in the film in special appearances. The film will release on November 5 in theatres
