Rohit Shetty, one of Hindi Cinema’s most celebrated and successful directors, is all set to make his debut in the world of OTT with the upcoming series Indian Police Force. Led by Sidharth Malhotra, the series also stars Shilpa Shetty and Vivek Oberoi. In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Rohit Shetty opened up about his plans for future projects and the continuation of the Cop Universe and Golmaal Franchise.
When asked about the progress of Golmaal 5, Rohit confirmed that the much-loved comic caper is on the cards, possibly after his next project, Singham Again. “Golmaal 5 will happen for sure. Looking at the response, I will have to make it a little soon. I think you will get Golmaal 5 in the next 2 years,” Rohit stated. He also promised that the fifth installment of Golmaal will be grander than its predecessors, as cinema has evolved and the palette has changed.
“Cinema in today’s time has to be grand and bigger than the likes of All The Best and Golmaal, which I made back in the day. By big, I don’t mean action. I can’t add action in Golmaal, but I can amp up the scale in the genre. There are so many fans of Golmaal, and I am making this brand for the fans. The next Golmaal film has to be bigger and better, though it’s a comedy franchise,” Rohit explained.
While Rohit Shetty is known for his successful Cop and Golmaal universe, he expressed his desire to venture into a different genre and is currently on the lookout for the right script. “Even I feel the need to make a film like Chennai Express. If I crack a story that is good and grand, I will make a fresh film,” he added.
Currently, Rohit is busy shooting for Singham Again, featuring Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, and Tiger Shroff in pivotal roles. The director promises an enthralling cinematic experience with this cop universe film. “I keep making bigger films. Singham Again is 10 times bigger than the first Singham. Indian Police Force is almost as big as Sooryavanshi,” he concluded.
