Nikitin Dheer to play the antagonist in the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Sooryavanshi’

After playing the role of ‘Thangaballi’ in ‘Chennai Express’, actor Nikitin Dheer is all set to collaborate with director Rohit Shetty for the second time in his upcoming cop drama ‘Sooryavanshi’. Speaking about being part of Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, Nikitin reportedly said that it is an absolute privilege for him to be part of this. He also remembered the iconic characters of Rohit Shetty’s films that include Jaykant Shikre played by Prakash Raj. The actor believes that that’s the beauty of this universe. According to Nikitin, the villains have left big boots to fill and he hopes he can do a job that keeps the legacy going.

Earlier, Nikitin had worked with Akshay Kumar in ‘Housefull 3’ and now the actor is very thrilled to work with the Khiladi actor once again. According to him, his father Pankaj Dheer did seven films with him at the start of his career. He also added that he remembers watching him on set as a kid and observed the fire and passion he had. Then, he got a chance to work with him in ‘Housefull 3’ and it was a lot of fun.

Elaborating more about his upcoming film with the actor, Nikitin stated that while ‘Housefull 3’ was a comedy film with a hint of action, ‘Sooryavanshi’ is an all-out action film. So, for him it will be like going to school and taking lessons in the craft from teachers. He added that he can’t wait to learn more from him. According to him, the best part about working with actors of his calibre is that one walks away richer in values, work ethic and experience and he is looking forward to it.

The Rohit Shetty directorial also stars ~Katrina Kaif, in the female lead. Akshay and Katrina will be seen together in the film after their popular film, ‘Namaste London’.
