"Akshay is one of the most hardworking actors I know. In fact, I learnt so much from him -- the dedication, the punctuality. It also helps that he has a great sense of humour," Katrina told IANS.
Sooryavanshi brings back Katrina and Akshay together after nine years. The two have previously worked in films such as Namastey London, Singh Is Kinng, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Welcome and Tees Maar Khan.
Sooryavanshi is the new addition in director Rohit Shetty's cop drama universe after the two Singham films and Simmba.
In Sooryavanshi, Akshay essays the role of Veer Suryavanshi, a character introduced as an anti-terrorist squad officer in the 2018 Simmba, starring Ranveer Singh.
The movie, which is scheduled to hit the screens on March 27, 2020, also stars Gulshan Grover.
