Bollywood's much-awaited action flick "Sooryavanshi", directed by filmmaker Rohit Shetty, and starring Akshay Kumar is all set to go for theatre release on April 30 worldwide, the makers announced on Sunday.
When the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown was announced later that month, "Sooryavanshi" became one of the first Bollywood tentpoles to halt its release.
The cop-action-drama was previously scheduled to be released on March 24 last year, but was postponed due to the pandemic, followed by theatres shutdown across the country.
Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to share the release date announcement video of the film.
"We promised you all a cinematic experience and that's what you will get. The wait is finally over! Aa Rahi Hai Police. #Sooryavanshi releasing worldwide in cinemas on 30th April 2021," Kumar captioned the video.
