Akshay Kumar shared a BTS picture of Sooryavanshi on Saturday and expressed excitement on the reopening of the theatres.
Akshay Kumar is quite ecstatic now that cinema theatres in Maharashtra are set to reopen on October 22. His much awaited Sooryavanshi will be released this Diwali. And to express the excitement, he took to social media to share a BTS picture from the sets of the movie. This picture however did not go down well with an IPS officer who pointed out an error in it.
The photo, shared by Akshay, featured him, Ranveer Singh, Ajay Devgn and director Rohit Shetty having a candid discussion amid the shoot. While Akshay, Ajay and Rohit stood next to each other, Ranveer sat on a desk placed in between them. Given Ranveer’s Simmba is lower in designation as compared to Ajay’s Singham and Akshay’s Sooryavanshi, the IPS officer said an inspector wouldn’t sit like that in front of his seniors in the real world.
“The Inspector Saheb sitting while the SP stands, it doesn’t happen like this, sir,” the officer implied in a statement, quoting Akshay’s post.
Akshay responded to the tweet in his usual calm demeanour. He said, “Sir, this behind-the-scenes photo. For us actors, the moment the cameras turn on, the protocol is followed. Regards forever to our great police forces. Hope you like the film when you watch it.”
“Thank you for your response and respect you showed for the forces @akshaykumar My comment was also in a lighter vein Will definitely watch the film,” the officer replied to Akshay.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role while Katrina Kaif plays his love interest. Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh, who have starred in the director’s cop films before, will make special appearances in the movie.
