The film is the fourth installment of Rohit Shetty’s cop drama franchise and is slated to release on Eid this year. The franchise started with Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Singham’ series, followed by Ranveer Singh’s ‘Simmba’, which was the last blockbuster of 2018.
With ‘Simmba’ Rohit Shetty has become the first director of Bollywood to have eight consecutive movies to enter 100 crore club. He has been renamed to Ro-HIT Shetty after the big success of ‘Simmba’ which scored ₹350 crores worldwide and made it to the top 10 highest grossers of Bollywood.
“This is the beginning of the new universe that we’ve created,” Shetty earlier told DNA in an interview.
