Sooryavanshi release date: Diwali weekend is upon us (almost) and the movie-going crowds are gearing up to watch the multi-starrer action-drama cop film Sooryavanshi. With the oft-paired couple Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead, this has been a highly anticipated release among fans. It is part of director Rohit Shetty’s ‘copverse’ that also includes titles Singham, Singham Returns and Simmba.
The release of the film saw multiple delays owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, as also happened with other Bollywood films this year. Its initial release date in March was pushed to April and then indefinitely.
The brutal second wave of the pandemic in India, at its peak between April and May, cleared into a lower national case count that continues. Experts have warned, however, that a third wave may be imminent.
