Deepika Padukone will star in 'Singham Again'
Singham Again will also star Deepika Padukone as the first female cop of the universe. The film is supposed to go on floors in April 2023. It will be interesting to see Padukone being a "boss lady" in a Shetty directorial. Meanwhile, this marks the 11th collaboration of Devgn and Shetty. Let's look back at their successful brand of cinema.
Shetty's debut film and collaboration with Devgn
Shetty's debut film Zameen (2003) was an action-thriller starring Devgn, Bipasha Basu, and Abhishek Bachchan. The film opened to moderate reviews and went on to become a decent box office success. Shetty's strengths include comedy and action and he explored the latter in his first film. Fans loved the chemistry of the actor-director duo here. This marked the start of the brand "Rohit Shetty."
'Golmaal' franchise and mastering the comedy genre
Their second venture Golmaal showed a new take on comedy films. The film and the whole franchise went on to become a cult classic with time and even to date, it has given a lot to "memedom." From the iconic characters to pitch-perfect comic timing, the whole franchise shows Shetty's mettle in comedy and action. The ensemble of actors is loved by everyone.
Other successful collaborations
Shetty has been one of the most bankable directors in the country. He has given huge box office successes and probably his recent debacle Cirkus is his only box office failure. Interestingly, Devgn and Shetty collaborations—All The Best, Bol Bachchan, Sunday, Golmaal and Singham franchises—have been mostly successful. Hence, their newly announced film is likely to mark Shetty's glorious comeback at the box office.
