Rohit Shetty promises Singham 3 will be bigger than Sooryavanshi, says new actors will keep the cop universe going
Rohit Shetty takes about his blockbuster cop universe and Sigham 3, reveals if Cirkus is a remake of Angoor
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty says in his upcoming feature "Cirkus" he has tried to present William Shakespeare's classic play "The Comedy of Errors" in a unique way.
Over the years, the Shakespearean comedy revolving around two sets of identical twins, has been adapted by many Indian filmmakers with Kishore Kumar-led "Do Dooni Chaar" (1968) and Gulzar's directorial venture "Angoor" (1982) being the most celebrated ones.
Shetty said "Cirkus", starring Ranveer Singh in the lead, is nowhere close to the previous film versions of the play.
“There have been many versions of 'The Comedy of Errors'. In Bengali cinema it was made as a black and white film, then ‘Do Dooni Chaar’ with Kishore Kumar... So, it has changed a lot over the years. Our film is a different take,” Shetty told PTI in an interview.
The 49-year-old filmmaker added that “Cirkus” is a "happy, cool, breezy film" much like his blockbuster comedies "Golmaal" and “All the Best”.
Shetty, who is currently filming for " Khatron Ke Khiladi " season 12 in South Africa, said he will resume work on his debut series "Indian Police Force" soon and then move to the third part of his much-loved cop universe film “Singham”.
The director said the film, to be headlined by Bollywood star Ajay Devgn , is in the scripting stage and will go on floors in April next year.
“‘Post 'Indian Police Force' all my attention is on ‘Singham 3’, it is Ajay’s due date now. ‘Singham’ has not come for the longest time," the filmmaker said.
