Mumbai, September 22: Rohit Shetty is going to be working on two of the most loved film franchises "Golmaal", and "Singham" next year. While "Golmaal 5" might take a little more time to take off, Rohit Shetty will most probably be directing the third installment of his cop-film "Singham" as early as next year.
Rohit Shetty is currently working on Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Pooja Hegde's starrer comedy film "Cirkus", which is the filmmaker's first outright comedy film outside the Golmaal franchise. While "Cirkus" is scheduled to release on 31st December this year, Shetty has reportedly locked the script of Bollywood's biggest cop franchise, "Singham 3".
The second film of the Singham franchise "Singham Returns" was released in 2014 and it's already been almost seven years since then. However, director Rohit Shetty cleverly capitalized this time and continued his cop universe with the blockbuster success of "Simmba" starring Ranveer Singh and the yet to be released and potential blockbuster "Sooryavanshi" featuring Akshay Kumar in the lead along with cameos from Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh as Singham and Simmba respectively.
The buzz around "Singham 3" has been making a big noise for quite some time now. According to reports, the story of "Singham 3" will take off from where "Sooryavanshi" ends. Ajay Devgn will once again don police uniform and will reprise his role as the daring cop and take on the main villain from the Akshay Kumar starrer. It is said that Akshay and Ranveer will play cameos in "Singham 3".
"The climax of Sooryavanshi will lead to Singham 3 with Ajay Devgn taking over the charge from Veer Sooryavanshi. The entire film is about Akshay's character racing against time to stop terror attacks in Mumbai, and they successfully stop the same in the climax of the film by capturing the negative leads, only to discover that it's not game over yet and the actual mastermind of the attack is still hiding safely at his whereabouts", a source said to a leading media publication.
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn has his hands full of films at the moment. He has biopic sports drama film "Maidaan", which will be the first to hit screens from his upcoming films that also include MayDay, Kaithi, Thank God, Golmaal 5, and Singham 3. He also has SS Rajamouli's "RRR" and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Gangubai Kathiawadi".
