Mumbai, August 18 - Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is handling two of the most successful film franchises in Indian cinema - Cop Universe and Golmaal series. It has been the magic of his filmmaking that every new film in these two franchises turned out to be a bigger hit than their predecessors and that's what makes Shetty a hit machine.
Rohit Shetty recently confirmed that the third installment of the Singham franchise, fronted by superstar Ajay Devgn, will start rolling in April 2023 and it will be the biggest film in his cop universe. Meanwhile, the audience is also eagerly waiting for the next film in the Golmaal series for a long time and the filmmaker has an update for the same.
Before the cop franchise, it was the Golmaal series that gave Rohit Shetty a blockbuster status and he said that he will keep making Golmaal films till the time he is making films. "Golmaal 5" might have started by now had there been not the covid-19 pandemic, but Shetty insists that it will happen and may start after "Singham 3".
"Golmaal will happen. It might be right after Singham or maybe another year post that. I enjoy that space and will keep making Golmaal till I am making films", the filmmaker said. "I have not changed the style of filmmaking. When the industry is in chaos, me and my team are the calmest at present because we are continuing to make the cinema we believe in – larger than life, commercial, and multi-genre", he spoke about his brand of cinema that made him what he is today.
The last Golmaal film, titled "Golmaal Returns", was released in 2017 and grossed over 300 crores at the worldwide box office against a budget of approx. 70 crores. Golmaal has an established cast that includes Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, and Kunal Khemu.
