To avoid a clash with Inshallah, Salman Khan has announced a new release date of Sooryavanshi with this heartwarming quote, "I always thought of him as my younger brother and today he proves it, Rohit Shetty. Sooryavanshi releasing on 27th March 2020."
Salman Khan announced the release of Inshallah after Rohit Shetty announced that Sooryavanshi will be released on Eid 2020. Rohit Shetty announced the release date of his film with the release of its first poster in March.
In April, in an interview to a portal, Salman said that he will begin working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film after he wraps up Dabangg 3. At that time, Salman, 53, had stated, "I'll start Dabangg 3 first and then Sanjay will release his film after that. So, Dabangg will release in December and we will come on Eid, next Eid (2020)."
However, speculation has been rife that Rohit was in no mood to lock horns with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Inshallah. Earlier, a source close to the development told a portal, "Rohit and Akshay Kumar announced their Sooryavanshi first for Eid 2020. But now when Salman is coming on Eid with Inshallah, there is no need for a clash. Sooryavanshi would easily find another release date. If Inshallah were to be postponed, Salman's fans would be upset."
Salman Khan's latest Eid release Bharat is making fireworks at the Box Office. The film has broken all box office records by becoming the biggest opener of Salman Khan's career.
A few days ago Salman had hinted about his collaboration Rohit Shetty. When asked about the same to Rohit's publicist, he confirmed the news saying that they are in talks and a joint venture is expected soon.
Rumours also suggested that Rohit will be directing Salman in Kick 2. However, Rohit's publicist has clarified the same and stated that the filmmaker won't be directing Kick 2 and the film with Salman will be made under Rohit Shetty Picturez.
Come back to Sooryavanshi and Inshallah, well, these two films are one of the most-anticipated films of 2020. While Inshallah is will see Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali coming together after 20 years, Akshay Kumar is taking Rohit Shetty's cop universe forward with Sooryavanshi.
Sooryavanshi directed by Rohit Shetty stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will now release on March 27, 2020.
