Rohit Shetty’s 2011 film Singham starring Ajay Devgn made its way to the 100 crore club that year, along with great acceptance by the audience. Reportedly, the trio of Reliance Entertainment, Ajay Devgn Films and Rohit Shetty Productions are all set to make a sequel.
The team told the Times of India that they wanted to make a sequel post the film’s success. “We just waited till we had the right script, and then we went ahead,” said Ajay. Rohit Shetty said that the success of the film made them feel like going ahead with a sequel right away, but they wanted to be sure of what they should do next. “Our audience has given us a lot of love and respect, and so it was important for us to make sure what we want the sequel to be like. It took me two years to finalize the draft of Singham 2,” he added.
Sanjeev Lamba, CEO of Reliance Entertainment, said that this franchise is very important to them. “We are very happy to have this sequel coming up with Rohit and Ajay. We are sure every fan of Singham, Ajay and Rohit will love Singham 2 and so will everyone else,” he stated.
Singham 2 will reportedly go on floors by early 2014 and hit the screens by mid-2014.
