Rohit Shetty is the pioneer of what can be termed the first ever cinematic universe of Indian cinema. The hit machine, who is among the most successful directors of the modern era, has got Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, and Akshay Kumar together as Singham, Simmba, and Sooryavanshi for the Rohit Shetty cop universe. While his Cirkus with Ranveer Singh is all set for a release on December 23, Rohit in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla informs that the prep work for Singham 3 has already begun.
“We have already started working on Singham 3. It has been a long time since I made an out-and-out Singham film. We start the shoot next year in April. Ajay Sir is busy with his commitments and I am also busy with Cirkus. So, by April, we will start Singham 3. It is going to be the biggest cop universe ever that we have made to date,” says Rohit, without divulging any other details. Pulling off a multi-star in today’s time is difficult and Rohit insists that for him, it isn’t as difficult a task as his actors have complete faith in his skill set.
“Ajay sir and Akshay sir come from an old school, where they believe in doing multiple hero films. Ranveer has the faith that I will present him in the right way. I never faced the problem of making such a cinema, but the young guys should not listen to their managers and start working on two hero films. They should leave their insecurity behind, otherwise, it will be difficult for the producers to make big-scale films. After 2 years, again the content films will work. But for the next 2 to 3 years, it’s going to be the thing to make big-scale films in the right way with multiple heroes. Big scale is what the audience will come and watch,” explains Rohit. Meanwhile, Rohit’s upcoming projects include Indian Police Force with Sidharth Malhotra and Cirkus with Ranveer Singh.
