Last month, reports hinted that the makers of Sooryavanshi are eyeing February 27 to launch the trailer of the much-awaited film. The latest development is that the plan changed and the launch date got rescheduled. And unfortunately for the fans, the launch postponed even further.
Speaking with Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development commented. "The trailer of Sooryavanshi will be out on March 2. The makers are aware that the buzz for the film is insane. After all, it has superstar Akshay Kumar and director Rohit Shetty coming together for the first time. Also, it is a part of Shetty's cop universe, a franchise that has become very big. Sooryavanshi releases on March 27 but they are confident that a 25-day window is enough for promotions."
The source then added, "Akshay Kumar's lucky number is 9. The date 02-03-2020 adds up to 9. As a result, he is keen to get the trailer out on this day. Even February 27 was selected for the same reason for the launch. The previous Akshay Kumar’s film, Good Newwz, released on December 27 and its trailer was out on November 18. Also, the trailer of his 2019 Independence Day release Mission Mangal was also out on July 28. All these dates add up to 9. So, he wants to continue with this tradition."
Sooryavanshi also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Gulshan Grover, and Sikandar Kher. The character of Sooryavanshi got introduced in the climax of Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba. This makes him the third character of the cop universe. The first was Singham, played by Ajay Devgn. Sooryavanshi features both Singham and Simmba.
On the first anniversary of Simmba, in December 2019, the team released a teaser that showed a glimpse of all three super cops coming together in for a battle.
