Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar guided Abhimanyu Singh, who plays the antagonist in the film, while he was filming action sequences in Hyderabad. Read on!
Ever since it has been announced that Rohit Shetty is coming with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif for Sooryavanshi, the buzz around the film is at an all time high. While the shooting of the film has already started, it is being reported that the antagonist of the film, Abhimanyu Singh, who made his debut with Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s 2001 film Aks, was schooled by Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar during the action sequences.
Although Abhimanyu Singh has performed a lot of high octane action scenes in his filmy career but it was different on the sets of Sooryavanshi as he had to jump from one building to another and shoot for long hours. “For this film, I am jumping from one building to another and the elaborate action sequences are stretching up to 13-15 days of shoot. So, I was a bit nervous in the beginning but Rohit sir made me comfortable and Akshay sir guided me well, even rehearsing the scenes with me and making sure I remembered every move before the camera rolled,” informed Abhimanyu Singh after wrapping up the Hyderabad schedule of the film.
After filming some intense action sequences in Thailand, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif shot for the song- Tip Tip Barsa Paani and while Katrina had shared BTS pictures from the sets, Akshay had penned a note on social media feeling grateful that no other actor but him got the opportunity to recreate this iconic song which originally had Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon. Earlier, Sooryavanshi was to clash with Salman Khan’s Inshallah but the makers of Sooryavanshi changed the date and now the film will hit the screens on March 27, 2020.
