Sooryavanshi also stars Katrina Kaif and is the latest addition in Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, that previously included Singham (Ajay Devgn) and Simmba (Ranveer Singh).

Sooryavanshi, which has been awaiting a release in theatres for more than a year, due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, is set to bring back the audience to the cinema halls. Speaking about the occupancy, trade guru Girish Johar told indianexpress.com, “There are certain states in the country that have allowed 50% or 60% occupancy in the theaters, while there are also some which have allowed 100%, so it’s a fractured mandate as of now. If Sooryavanshi clocks even 50-60 per cent of the pre-pandemic level, it would be a phenomenal start. This is the first big release date, so we don’t know whether people are feeling safe coming to the theatres or not. But the states allowing 100 per cent occupancy do give some confidence,” Johar opined.
