Sooryavanshi is one of the most awaited films of 2020. It has been in news even before the project started rolling, simply because it brings together superstar Akshay Kumar and hit machine Rohit Shetty for the first time ever.

Now, it has been confirmed that Sooryavanshi will not be hitting theatres on 24th March 2020.

A statement from Rohit Shetty Picturez read that Sooryavanshi is an experience that the makers have created for the audience with over a year of dedication and hard work, and the response they received for its trailer was nothing less than electrifying and made it clear that this film truly belongs to its audience.

The statement further read, "We have been as excited as you are to present the film to you and your family, but due to the recent outburst of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we, the makers, have decided to postpone the release of your film Sooryavanshi, keeping in mind the health and safety of our beloved audience.

We shall pull through this.”

The announcement regarding the new release date of the film is highly-awaited.
