The cop drama was originally scheduled to release on March 24, last year, but got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the shutting down of cinema halls. There were some reports that claimed the film will be released on OTT platforms. The makers, however, denied these claims.

Reliance Entertainment tweeted last year, that they “are very confident that the ongoing theatrical exhibition situation will improve much in time” to make way for Sooryavanshi (and its other production, 83’s) release.

Sooryavanshi is the third film in Rohit Shetty’s cop universe after Ajay Devgn’s Singham and Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba. Sooryavanshi is an out-and-out action-packed Bollywood potboiler.

In the film, Akshay Kumar plays DCP Sooryavanshi, who is out to stop a series of terror attacks in Mumbai. Ajay Devgn’s Singham and Ranveer Singh’s Simmba also make an appearance in the film, completing the cop trio. All the sequences promise a quintessential Rohit Shetty film.
