New Delhi, May 12 (IANS) Rohit Shetty has actually linked the world of “Singham”, “Simmba” and his approaching movie “Sooryavanshi”– developing his own “cop universe” in Bollywood. However the filmmaker states the choice to combine together the popular films was not a simple one.
“I can’t claim that I am making India’s superheroes. But we are creating our own universe and I am happy that people are loving it and they know about this universe,” Rohit informed IANS
“When I started with ‘Simmba’, when we were scripting for the film and we thought about the universe getting merged, I was a bit scared. Whether people will (like it)… Suddenly they should not feel ‘what is happening’,” he included.
Apart from being laced with the star power of Ranveer Singh and the appeal of Sara Ali Khan, “Simmba” was admired for bringing the world of Rohit’s franchises together easily.
Whether it was putting the cast of his “Golmaal” together in the electrifying “Aankh maare” with a prospective tip about another movie in the franchise, or Ajay Devgn concerning the rescue of Simmba in his Singham avatar, or the intro of Akshay as “Sooryavanshi” in the end– “Simmba” amused fans for its crossover action drama.
Rohit mores than happy that the threat settled well.
“I more than happy that it was so well gotten. When we revealed ‘Sooryavanshi’ and presented the character in ‘Simmba’, it offered us the self-confidence and we had actually taken a larger threat.
“It was a big threat and I was anxious and frightened about the first-weekend response to‘Simmba’ In the very first day just, it was so popular. It offered us self-confidence and duty that ‘Okay, we can continue with this universe and expand it’.”
Akshay’s “Sooryavanshi” will take it forward.
The movie is backed by Rohit Shetty Pictures in association with Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films. It is produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Rohit.
“That is what ‘Sooryavanshi’ is all about. It is going to expand the universe… let’s see what happens.”
At the minute, Rohit is elated to launch “Golmaal Jr.”.
The channel Sonic, from the Nickelodeon franchise in association with Reliance Animation and Rohit Shetty Picturez, will restore the world of “Golmaal”– this time in an enjoyable animated method. The series will go on air on May13 “Golmaal Jr.” recreates the turmoil of the movie by pitting 2 trick gangs versus each other.
On the idea behind the series, Rohit stated: “It began with‘Little Singham’ It was like an experiment whether the kids will like it or not … It did so well that it offered us the self-confidence to make ‘Golmaal’ into an animated franchise.
“We understood that ‘Golmaal’ is larger when the animation is worried since it has actually got numerous characters … The program is funny and it will leave you with a feel-good sensation.”
What about the next chapter of “Golmaal” for the big screen?
“It (the franchise) will keep going on… Till the time we all grow old,” he stated.
