It’s been a long time since we have seen Bollywood’s power bank Ranveer Singh on the silver screen. The actor has several interesting films in his kitty like Kabir Khan’s directorial 83, Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus and Yash Raj Films’ upcoming venture Jayeshbhai Jordaar. He will also be seen in Sooryavanshi, a part of Rohit Shetty’s cop-universe, which will introduce Akshay Kumar as the titular character.
Ranveer recently celebrated 10 years in the film industry. On Instagram, he shared a video, which traced his journey from being a newbie to becoming the heartthrob of the nation. Sharing the video, the actor wrote, “I only see possibilities. To defy definition. To transcend genres and empower a new generation to see their own possibilities and write their own stories.”
Apart from ruling the box office, Ranveer Singh launched his passion project IncInk, which completed two years this year. The actor, who turned an entrepreneur, found the label with the filmmaker Navzar Eranee. Under his label, the actor gave space to many hip-hop artists. Interestingly, the passion project was launched after the actor featured in Gully Boy, a Zoya Akhtar directorial, inspired by the lives of Indian street rappers Divine and Naezy. The actor had earlier mentioned he is proud that IncInk has “become a creative platform for budding, talented musicians and is empowering them to shine bright.”

Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi will see Ranveer Singh reprising his role of Sangram ‘Simmba’ Bhalerao. The film was supposed to release on April 30.

“The Honorable Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Mr Uddhav Thackeray had a discussion with director Rohit Shetty yesterday. In the meeting, Mr Uddhav Thackeray appreciated Rohit Shetty as he took the brave and difficult decision of postponing Sooryavanshi owing to the current COVID situation in the state,” read the makers’ statement.
