Will do a lady cop film to complete universe

Mumbai: Filmmaker Rohit Shetty on Tuesday said he has definite plans to make a female cop film to complete his Singham universe, which chronicles stories of police personnel.

Shetty's follow-up to his hit Singham was 2018's Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba, which was part of a multi-film universe that the director has in mind. The next film in this universe is Akshay Kumar-fronted Sooryavanshi.

Asked if he plans to make a female cop film, Shetty told reporters, "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 an event. Shetty, who has delivered consecutive blockbusters and is known for making larger-than-life massy films, said he got the idea to start a universe while watching 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 onward," he said.

The filmmaker said as the concept of creating a universe was novel for the Indian audience, he was initially nervous about the plunge.

"I was scared before the release as 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."
