The same report states that Rohit would change the ending of the Tamil film in his Hindi adaptation to fit into his Singham-Simmba-Sooryavanshi universe. The same report states that some scenes would be replicated but largely, it would be a new film. It is also being rumoured that Ranveer Singh's Simmba and Ajay Devgn's Singham would make special appearances in Sooryavanshi.

Rohit's previous blockbuster Simmba, starring Ranveer and Sara Ali Khan, was also adapted from a Tamil movie, Temper.
