Bollywood is buzzing with whispers about Sonam Kapoor reuniting with Akshay Kumar for his next film Sooryavanshi wherein the superstar plays a rough and tough ATS cop. The duo was last seen together in filmmaker R. Balki’s successful social drama film PadMan (2018), which revolved around the taboo topic of menstruation and sanitary pads in rural India.
Sooryavanshi, which is an out-and-out action entertainer, is being directed by renowned director Rohit Shetty. If Sonam agrees to come onboard to play the female lead, it will be her first film with the hit filmmaker.
The project is expected to begin production very soon as Shetty is planning to release the movie in December.
Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor is busy garnering widespread appreciation for her outstanding performance in her latest release Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2018). The film sees the actress in the role of a small-town homosexual woman.
She will next be seen in the Shashank Ghosh-directed The Zoya Factor, which stars southern superstar Dulquer Salmaan as her love interest. The movie is scheduled to release on 5th May, 2019.
