In Sooryavanshi, Akshay plays the lead role of Veer Sooryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in Ranveer Singh's 2018 film Simmba. The film also features Ajay Devgn, who headlined Rohit Shetty's cop series Singham, in a cameo.
Sooryavanshi opened to decent reviews this Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film two and a half stars out of five and wrote: "Just like Simmba had provided a glimpse of what was to come in the next instalment, Sooryavanshi indicates what the future might hold for the Rohit Shetty cop universe. Brace yourself for another cops-and-terrorists faceoff with the character essayed by Jackie Shroff getting greater play than he does here. That might be something to look forward to."
