New Delhi: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Inshallah’ were all set to clash at the box office on Eid 2020. However, the two big budget films will no longer lock horns as the release date of Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ has been pre-poned to March 27, 2020. Salman Khan and Rohit took to their respective social media handles to announce the release date of ‘Sooryavanshi’.
