Apparently Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty were not on good terms post the tremendous success of the latter’s film Chennai Express. The two had previously delivered hits like the Golmaal series and later Singham; so this talk was obviously a shock to all.
Now, the two have squashed all such talk and announced that they will be making a sequel to Singham, titled Singham 2. The previous film was jointly produced by Ajay Devgn and Reliance Entertainment while the sequel is being produced by Shetty and Devgn.
A source says “The corporate house in question will merely present the film. Ajay and Rohit share a great relationship and this takes it one step further. While the female lead has not been finalized yet, Ajay will reprise his role from the previous film.”
When asked why the Reliance Entertainment and Shetty are not collaborating, the source says Rohit’s creative ideas are not gelling with the corporate house’s view-points. “Rohit had creative differences with the corporate house the first time around and this time he made it clear to them that he did not want any interference. Ajay had to step in that time to play peacemaker. Now, Ajay and Rohit can do it their way,” added the source.
The name is also under speculation as to whether it will be named Singham 2 or something else.
