Grover has played a villain in several Akshay Kumar films, including Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Hera Pheri and International Khiladi. Kher was last seen in John Abraham's espionage drama, Romeo Walter Akbar (RAW).

Akshay, who plays the lead as Anti-Terrorism Squad chief, also shared a new still from the sets of Bangkok, where they are currently shooting for the cop drama. He is seen "casually hanging" from a helicopter, with Rohit riding a bike.

In April, Katrina Kaif was roped in to play the role of the female lead. Neena Gupta has also been brought on board, the actress confirmed in a statement to Mumbai Mirror. She will take on the role of Akshay's mother in the film.

Produced by Dharama productions, Sooryavanshi is slated for Eid 2020 release and will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's romantic drama Inshallah, starring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt.
