After a string of comedy super hits over the past few years, director Rohit Shetty is back to working on the genre which he loves the most, namely action. This year, the talented director is churning out his latest cop action flick Singham which is the remake of a hit Tamil movie.
Like in all his movies, this time too fans will get to see the magic of the Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn jodi along with southern beauty Kajal Aggarwal who plays the lead opposite Ajay. Her brilliant performances down south are what brought her to the notice of the ace director.

The star cast comprises of popular Marathi actors such as Ashok Saraf, Sachin Khedekar, Sonali Kulkarni, Anant Jogue, Vijay Patkar, Agasthya Dhanorkar, Suchitra Bandekar, Jayant Sawarkar, Suhasini Deshpande, Meghna Vaidya, Ashok Samarth, Kishore Nandlaskar, Ravindra Berde, Pradeep Welankar and Hemu Adhikari.
In fact, even composers Ajay-Atul, who are creating waves on the Marathi film music scenario, have been roped in for the music of the film.
The shoot of the film is currently in progress in Mumbai, after which the entire unit will move to Wai, in the Satara district for the next segment.
