The Bollywood film associations are exuberant over the success of Sooryavanshi. The Rohit Shetty directorial, which was released in theatres all over India and overseas recently despite the Maharashtra Government’s 50% occupancy restrictions, has set the cash registers ringing. The FWICE [Federation of Western India Cine Employees] too joined the film’s unit in celebrating the success.

FWICE workers cheered Rohit Shetty and a cake was cut on the occasion.

Talking about it, Akshay Kumar said, "It feels great that the Bollywood industry is coming together and celebrating the success of Sooryavanshi. We as an industry were hit very badly by the pandemic. Bhojpuri, Guajarati, Marathi industries should also celebrate. The Southern industry — Tamil, Telugu, Kannada films — are doing stupendously well. So all of us should celebrate the rejuvenation of cinema. It’s time we start moving ahead. Life should go on."

Further talking about the success, the actor thanked the audiences and media for their support, particularly as Sooryavanshi was the first release in theatres post pandemic restrictions. "But there’s more to work for, more to learn," he added.

Director Rohit Shetty, who was showered with praise by the FWICE workers, said with all humility that he was one of them, and would always stand with them. "This is the achievement of junior artistes and the dancers. This success belongs to all of you. Together we will face whatever problems come," said the filmmaker.
