Mumbai, July 11 -- Ajay Devgn, who was seen as the nononsense, gritty cop in Singham (2011), will be taking the franchise forward this year.
The sequel of the film, Singham Returns, is expected to hit theatres on August 15, 2014, with Ajay playing Bajirao Singham in the action-packed entertainer. The makers of the movie say that it will have power-packed performances from all the actors. "This time around, Bajirao Singham and his muscleflexing ways will take the story a few notches higher, highlighting some current and deeprooted issues that the aam aadmi (common man) faces on a daily basis, through an edgier and thrilling platform," says an industry insider.
The film, to be directed by Rohit Shetty, will continue to highlight the services of the police force. "Singham Returns will not only see the powerful hit Ajay-Rohit duo play on their home turf, but will also see Kareena Kapoor Khan play Ajay's love interest. Actors like Amole Gupte, Anupam Kher, and others, will be part of the new cast," says the insider.
