Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi, also starring Katrina Kaif, was initially supposed to release on March 24 but because of the nationwide lockdown, the film was rescheduled. Months later, Reliance Entertainment, which is presenting the film, announced the film will have a theatrical release on Diwali. Meanwhile, Reliance Entertainment, which is also backing Kabir Khan's sports biopic '83, announced that the release date of the film was moved from April 10 to Christmas.
Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in Rohit Shetty's cop universe. Other than Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, the film also features Ranveer Singh (who played a police officer in the 2018 film Simmba) and Ajay Devgn (who starred in the cop series Singham ). In the film, Akshay will play the lead role of Veer Suryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in Simmba.
'83 showcases the story of India's iconic win at the 1983 Cricket World Cup. In the film, Ranveer Singh will be playing the role of Kapil Dev. Pankaj Tripathi will be seen playing the role of manager PR Man Singh. Ammy Virk has been cast as Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Saahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani and Tahir Bhasin has been zeroed in to play the role of Sunil Gavaskar in the film. Deepika Padukone has been roped in to play Kapil Dev's wife Romi Bhatia on screen.
