Talking to the daily, Abhimanyu Singh said, “It began when Rohit sir saw my 2017 Tamil action-thriller ‘Theeran’, which was based on a true story. It was a big hit in which I had a played a villain with heroic shades. He liked my performance in that film and thought that I would fit the role of the baddie in Sooryavanshi. It so happens that I live near Rohit sir’s office and one day, he called me over and congratulated me for bagging the part.”
Abhimanyu opened up about his role in Akshay Kumar starrer in ‘Sooryavanshi’ and said, “The role I’m playing in the film is in India working against several policemen and is on a mission. It’s an interesting role. Akshay sir and I have known each other for a while now and it has been a great shoot from the first day. It was a serious scene and we had to complete it in a day, which we did. It was lovely shooting with Akshay sir and Rohit sir made me feel as if we have known each other for years.”
