The film is presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez in association with Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films.
Sooryavanshi was originally scheduled to arrive in cinema halls on March 24, 2020, but was delayed after theatres were shut in the wake of the pandemic.
After one more delay, the makers had planned to release it on April 30 this year, but the second wave of COVID-19 further pushed their plans.
On September 25, Shetty announced the worldwide release of ‘Sooryavanshi’ in theatres on Diwali, soon after the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray declared the reopening of cinema halls in the state from October 22.
Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in Shetty’s cop series, which also features an extended cameo of Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh – who have played police officers in the director’s previous movies Singham and Simmba respectively.
