- Akshay Kumar shared an update from Sooryavanshi sets
- He dedicated an ROFL note to action director Sunil Rodrigues
- "Sooryavanshi giving love to the big man," wrote Akshay
Akshay Kumar let us in on the sets of Sooryavanshi with yet another Instagram entry. Akshay Kumar and director Rohit Shetty, who had been shooting the cop drama in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City for weeks, wrapped the Hyderabad schedule of the film and the 51-year-old actor marked the mile-stone with an interesting Instagram photo. In Akshay's post, the film's cast and crew can be seen literally pointing their guns at who appears to be renowned action director Sunil Rodrigues. According to Akshay Kumar, the idea behind this off-screen stunt is to "give love". Here's what he wrote in the caption: "When your action is over and the only thing left to do is shoot the fight master. Sooryavanshi giving love to the big man with the golden head who kept us all alive during this epic crazy month."
Pretty scary, huh? Take a look at Akshay's post here.
Action director Sunil Rodrigues has collaborated with Rohit Shetty for films such as Simmba, Dilwale, Singham Returns and Golmaal Again. He also has also choreographed action sequences for movies such as Happy New Year, Drishyam, Mukkabaaz, Pari and Zero among others.
Meanwhile, actor Vivan Bhathena, who co-stars with Akshay Kumar in the movie, also Instagrammed a similar photo and shared his experience of working with the superstar and director Rohit Shetty: "This is the best unit I've ever worked with. So confident and composed about everything they do and of course Rohit Shetty's practical jokes on set and Akshay Kumar's sense of humour just keeps you going even in 50 degree heat."

Akshay Kumar co-stars with Katrina Kaif in Sooryavanshi and the film marks both stars' first project with Rohit Shetty. Sooryavanshi marks Rohit Shetty's fourth cop drama after the Singham series of films and Simmba. The film will release on March 27 to avert a box office collision with Salman Khan's Inshallah releasing on Eid.
