After Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor and Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez is the latest actress whose name is being linked to Rohit Shetty’s upcoming directorial venture Sooryavanshi, starring superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
Buzz has it that Fernandez has been finalized to play the female lead opposite Kumar in the cop drama. If reports are true, Sooryavanshi will mark the third collaboration between the actress and the superstar. Both have previously worked together on Housefull 2 (2012) and Brothers (2015).
Rohit Shetty, who has never worked with Akshay Kumar before, is quite excited about joining hands with the superstar. With Sooryavanshi, the director is creating a cop universe. His other cop films include Singham (2011) and Simmba (2018).
Sooryavanshi is slated for an Eid 2020 release.
On the work front, Jacqueline Fernandez will next be seen in Dharma Productions’ much-delayed film Drive. She is also doing a film with Kartik Aaryan.
