Rohit Shetty Is Currently Working On Sooryavanshi With Akshay Kumar
Simmba director Rohit Shetty is looking for a female cop film to complete his Singham universe. Last year, Simmba was a bug success and director decided to start a universe on cop based films.
Rohit Shetty is currently working on Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar. When he gets a question regarding the female cop film, Rohit Shetty answers, “Soon we will be making it. We have a story in mind. We will definitely do it. We need to take a year or so, but we plan to do that to complete the universe.”
The director was speaking at a special session at the FICCI Frames 2019.
Rohit said that he got the idea to start a universe from Hollywood superhero projects like Avengers.
“Whatever happens in Hollywood, happens here 10 years down the line. That’s always been the theory. When I was watching the ‘Avengers’ series, I got an idea that ‘why don’t we create a universe?’ Obviously, we don’t have the kind of budget to make so many superhero films year after year. Then I thought to make a cop universe from Simmba onwards,” said Rohit Shetty.
He also added, “I was a bit scared before the release because this was happening for the first time in our country. I knew that youngsters and kids will (understand), because they have Avengers, but our mature audience hasn’t seen that. I had doubts merging two worlds but it worked big time.”
