      Shetty was quoted as saying, "Thursday night tak betting chal raha tha industry mein bohot logo ka. Apne ko pata chal jaata hai, apne ko koi bolta nahi darr ke. But malum tha. (The betting continued till Thursday night, amongst a lot of people in the industry. I got to know, nobody told me because they were scared. But I knew)."

      Speaking about what was being discussed in the showbiz circles, he continued, "Release hoyega, yeh pagal ho gaya hai. Theatre mein koi nahi aayega. (Film will release but he's gone mad. Nobody will go to the theatres to watch)."

      On being asked why he was so keen to have a theatrical release for Sooryavanshi, the filmmaker explained, "Mera yeh tha ki basic life shuru ho gayi thi nah. 50 percent pe business ho raha hai. But ho raha hai, touchwood (Basic life had started. Business was running at 50 percent, but was running. Touchwood)."

      Sooryavanshi revolves around Akshay Kumar's cop character Veer Sooryavanshi who set out to thwart a terrorist plot in the city.
