Tiger Shroff to join Rohit Shetty’s cop universe

By: Priyal Joshi

Tiger Shroff has been reported to join the cast of Singham Again. It stars Ajay Devgan as Singham, Akshay Kumar as Sooryavanshi, Ranveer Singh as Simmba and Deepika Padukone as a female cop. It also has Kareena Kapoor Khan joining in as Ajay Devgan’s wife. A source reported that  “It’s a cameo appearance for Tiger Shroff in Singham Again and Rohit plans to introduce him as a new cop to the universe. Much like his Singham, Simmba, and Sooryavanshi, Tiger Shroff too will have his own distinct identity in the cop universe with traits unique to his own personality.” The source further added that Tiger was also offered another cop franchise film, but he decided to go ahead with the Rohit Shetty universe. The source further said, “It’s a schedule of combination dates with Singham, Simmba and Sooryavanshi. The trio will be shooting by September end/Early October and Tiger Shroff too will be joining them for a short 6 to 7-day period. Apart from the schedule of combination dates, Tiger will also be shooting for his personality entry sequence in Singham. He has some solo portions too in Singham Again, which eventually leads to the core conflict. He has allotted 12 days for the shoot and is ready for more as well as and when Rohit Shetty demands.”

Earlier it was rumoured that Vicky Kaushal had joined the cast but had to leave due to dates clashing with his previous commitment Chhava. To clarify this, Rohit Shetty Picturez has given an official statement that reads, “There have been many speculations doing rounds in the star cast in Rohit Shetty’s next directorial, Singham Again. The film is currently in pre-production. We kindly request the media to refrain from making any premature announcements at this stage. We will be making an official star cast announcement soon.”

Rohit Shetty is set to begin filming “Singham Again” in September. The movie marks the fifth installment in the Rohit Shetty universe, with Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, and Deepika Padukone portraying the cops. The film is scheduled to hit the big screen during the Independence Day weekend.
