This week on FC Flash, Akshay Kumar announces that Sooryavanshi will arrive in theaters on Eid 2020. Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in Rohit Shetty’s police universe.
Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya a film, about dakus in an existential crisis, was a critical hit but a commercial failure. It was speculated that one reason might be the Bundelkhandi dialect, which alienated viewers. The film was released with English subtitles but a Hindi dubbed version was also released. The film’s lead Sushant Singh Rajput tweeted that neither he nor the film’s senior cast had dubbed for the Hindi version and that this news was heartbreaking.
Meanwhile, the logo of Brahmastra was released on Mahashivratri at the Kumbh mela. The film is one of Bollywood’s most ambitious attempts to create a homegrown fantasy franchise.
Akshay Kumar wasn’t the only action star in the news this week. The trailers of John Abraham’s Romeo Akbar Walter and Vidyut Jammwal’s Junglee dropped.
It was also a good week for Vicky Kaushal who has stepped into Irrfan’s very big shoes and will now be playing freedom fighter Udham Singh in the biopic being directed by Shoojit Sircar.
