Rohit Shetty on creating 'desi cop' universe

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Hollywood is all about cinema universes and it seems Bollywood is following suit.

Director Rohit Shetty says he is expanding the "desi cop" universe, which he started with Ajay Devgn-starrer "Singham" and followed up with Ranveer Singh's "Simmba" and now Akshay Kumar-fronted "Sooryavanshi".

The film, which is currently under production, also features Ajay and Ranveer.

"After making 'Singham' franchise, we thought of expanding the cop universe and that's how ‘Simmba' happened. For the first time, we had merged two worlds - ‘Simmba' and ‘Singham' and had also added a new element with ‘Sooryavanshi'. It was a big risk but it worked," Rohit reacted

"We are trying to create a world of our own and we have been open about it. It will only grow (with time). There will be female cops as well in my universe," he said.  The director thinks it is not possible to create something like the "Avengers" franchise in India because of budget constraints.

"The budget of something like 'Avengers' is too high. We do not have that kind of budget. It is not that we do not have a special team (referring to VFX) or action. We have that."  For "Sooryavanshi", Rohit has teamed up for the first time with Katrina Kaif and he says this is the right film for them to come together.
