It will now be released on March 2 and the movie will hit the theatres on March 25,” Shetty had said in an interview.
He continued: “Me, Akshay and all the other team members believe that a 25-day window is enough for the promotion of Sooryavanshi. Actually, when I was discussing about releasing dates of the trailer and movie with Akshay, he told me that his lucky number is 9. And the date 02-03-2020 adds up to 9. So, he [Akshay Kumar] seemed keen to have the trailer out on this day. In fact, February 27 was also selected for the same reason for the trailer launch.”
