Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi: Is Akshay Kumar paired with his Housefull 4 co-actress Pooja Hegde again?
Rohit Shetty’s Simmba starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khanintroduced a new character – Sooryavanshi played by Akshay Kumar, who is going to be made into a franchise. For the uninitiated, Rohit already has the franchise of Singham, and plans to take it forward with Simmba and Sooryavanshi. Rohit might have announced the movie name through Akshay’s cameo in Simmba, but never confirmed who the actress would be.
A source told Bollywood Bubble about the same. They said, “There’s hardly any space for a heroine. That’s how most of Rohit’s films are designed except a few. The cop dramas have always had minute roles for all the actresses and it’s a similar case for ‘Sooryavanshi’ as well.”
The source added, “Pooja Hegde will be seen opposite Akshay. He has been instrumental in telling Rohit to consider her for the part. Akshay and Pooja are paired opposite each other in one of the portions in ‘Housefull 4.”
Just like Simmba marked the first collaboration for Ranveer-Rohit, Sooryavanshi would mark the first time when Akshay and Rohit join hands. Unlike Ranveer, Akshay might even contribute to producing Sooryavanshi, which is something he usually does in almost every film in which he acts.
