Rohit Shetty expressed his excitement in his Instagram post, reminiscing about the inception of the Cop Universe 12 years ago with “Singham.” He stated, “Singham, Singham returns, Simmba, Sooryavanshi…12 Years ago, when we made Singham, we never thought that it would turn into a Cop Universe! Today, we begin filming Singham Again… the 5th film in our cop franchisee. ISME HUM APNI JAAN LAGA DENGE! BAS AAPKE PYAAR AUR DUA KI ZAROORAT HAI!”
Ajay Devgn, who portrays the iconic Inspector Bajirao Singham, also reflected on the Cop Universe’s incredible journey. He wrote, “12 years ago, we gave Indian Cinema its biggest cinematic Cop Universe. With all the love we have received over the years, the force got stronger, and the Singham family got bigger. Today, we come together to take our franchise ahead with Singham Again!”
Ranveer Singh, who plays Inspector Sangram Bhalerao, also known as Simmba, shared a picture of himself performing aarti, symbolizing the auspicious beginning of the film. He expressed his excitement, stating, “Subharamabh. All set to reprise one of my most loved characters from the Rohit Shetty Cop Universe – SIMMBA in #SinghamAgain!

In his caption, he stated, “Not in the country at the moment, missing from the frame in person but totally there in spirit. Can’t wait to join you guys on the sets of #SinghamAgain! Sending my best wishes. Jai Mahakaal.”
The “Singham” franchise has enjoyed immense success since its inception. The first film, “Singham,” released in 2011, featuring Ajay Devgn, Prakash Raj, and Kajal Aggarwal. It was followed by “Singham Returns” in 2014, with Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles. “Simbaa” marked the entry of Ranveer Singh into the franchise in 2018, and in 2021, “Sooryavanshi” introduced Akshay Kumar to the Cop Universe. Each of these films has been a box office hit, further solidifying the Cop Universe’s prominence in Indian cinema. Fans eagerly await the fifth installment, “Singham Again,” to see how the saga continues to captivate audiences with its high-octane action and thrilling narratives.
