Akshay Kumar is about to start shooting for his first collaboration with Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi. The actor announced the film along with Rohit a long time ago and there were rumours that they are planning to release the film this year, however later, they revealed the release date few days ago. The duo has chosen Eid for next year.
Akshay has recently stated in the media interaction that he decided to lock this date because Salman Khan, who was known to have releases on this festival, had not booked the date for next year. Now, S.S. Rajamouli too is planning to release his much talked about film RRR with Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt around that time. The filmmaker has yet to announce the exact release date, though he has started shooting for the project with his two heroes.
It is said that since his film is mega budget and is going to release in ten different language, it will pose a tough competition to Akshay’s film. In fact, buzz also suggests that other filmmakers may also reshuffle their release dates of their films around that time.
