Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar were one of the most popular onscreen pairs in the early 2000s. The actress shot to superstardom featuring opposite Kumar in a series of hits like 'Singh Is King', 'Welcome', 'De Dana Dan' among others. 

Now, nearly a decade later, the two are all set to unite for Rohit Shetty's new cop film 'Suryavanshi'. However, there's no official confirmation from the makers yet. 

'Sooryavanshi'- the fourth installment in Shetty's cop series, is slated to release on Eid 2020. 

Directed by Rohit Shetty, 'Sooryavanshi' is the fourth film in his cop-universe after Simmba and the two super-hit Singham films.

Akshay's last release 'Kesari' opened to great numbers at the Box Office on Holi and has been doing steady business. 

The actor has a busy year ahead with four films at various stages of production-- 'Housefull 4', 'Mission Mangal' and 'Good News' and 'Sooryavanshi' for which the actor will start shooting soon. 

Katrina, meanwhile, will next be seen opposite Salman Khan in June this year in Ali Abbas Zafar's ambitious project 'Bharat'.
