Bollywood star Deepika Padukone will be boarding Rohit Shetty’s cop universe with his upcoming directorial Singham Agai, the filmmaker confirmed on Thursday. The actor-director duo have previously worked on 2019’s action comedy Chennai Express and recently collaborated for the song Current Laga from Shetty’s upcoming venture Cirkus, led by Ranveer Singh. The filmmaker announced Padukone’s casting during the launch event of the special track, which features her alongside husband Singh.
“Everybody keeps asking me when I’ll introduce Lady Singham. So, here it is. Deepika Padukone will be the Lady Singham in Singham Again. She is my lady bomb from the cop universe, and we’re going to start working together on it next year,” the filmmaker told reporters in Mumbai.
Singham Again is the third film in the Singham series, fronted by Ajay Devgn. Singh, who is also part of the cop universe as Simmba, said working with his real-life partner and frequent co-star Padukone is a lot of fun.
“When we come together on set, I have a lot of fun. You have to cherish those moments when you have a co-actor that you can trust. The one, who you know is not going to play one-upmanship, and it becomes a collaborative effort. There is a give and take. Trust is indeed a foundation of good chemistry between co-actors,” Ranveer Singh said.
Deepika Padukone, who has starred with Singh in Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and “Padmaavat”, said they believe in being professional on sets.
“On set we don’t think that we’re husband and wife. As actors, the minute the camera comes on, we’re thinking of our characters,” she added.
Cirkus is based on William Shakespeare’s classic play The Comedy of Errors. The film revolves around two sets of identical twins, who were accidentally separated at birth.
The movie, presented by Bhushan Kumar led T-Series, also features Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Siddhartha Jadhav, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra and Vrajesh Hirjee, among others.
It is scheduled to be released on December 23.
