Katrina Kaif has been roped in as the leading lady opposite Akshay Kumar in the next film in Rohit's cop franchise. "It is lovely to be working with Akshay. I have known him for a long time.

In "Sooryavanshi", Rohit has planned the special appearance of his two other popular cop characters - "Singham" (Ajay Devgn) and "Simmba" (Ranveer Singh). Rohit also recently shared his desire to make a female cop film and Katrina said she is looking forward to the tentative project.

"I have been thinking about it since 2010. There are few ideas and concepts that I have heard and this is the year I want to step in. I am hearing a few things, but I haven't greenlit (anything)."

The film's team will reportedly head to Bangkok to shoot Akshay's introductory sequence soon. They will also shoot in Hyderabad and Goa. The movie also stars Sara Ali Khan and will see Neena Gupta essay Akshay's mother.

Rohit Shetty has often been criticised for etching female characters that have precious little to do in his films.

I have my hero to do all the action, so I can't be making the actresses fight. When I make a lady cop film, they will fight villains. We are developing a film along those lines."
