Abhimanyu, who has started shooting for the film, said his character is "unpredictable and deadly".
"It's an interesting role. Akshay sir and I have known each other for a while now and it has been a great shoot from the first day. It was a serious scene and we had to complete it in a day, which we did.
Abhimanyu made his big screen debut with the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra-directed 2001 supernatural-thriller "Aks" and was more recently seen in the Sridevi-starrer "Mom".
"Sooryavanshi" is the third film Shetty's cop universe after Ajay Devgn-fronted "Singham" and Ranveer Singh's "Simmba".
The filmmaker is also planning to make a film centred on a female cop.
