The Singham Returns director talks about working with Ajay and Bebo
Rohit Shetty has re-teamed with frequent collaborators Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor in his upcoming film Singham Returns and the filmmaker says working with the two actors is always fun. The 41-year-old director has previously directed Ajay in all of his previous films except Chennai Express, which starred superstar Shahrukh Khan.
While Kareena has worked with Rohit in films like Golmaal Returns and Golmaal 3.
“It is fabulous to get together again with the two. I am reuniting with Ajay after Bol Bachchan and Kareena after Golmaal 3. Kareena is like family and Ajay is a brother. So the mood on the sets is very jovial. It does not feel like we are shooting a film. It is like one big outing and we are having a lot of fun together,” Rohit told in an interview.
The shooting of Singham 2, which is the sequel of 2011 film Singham also starring Ajay, is currently underway in Goa. The film will see Ajay reprise the role of a cop Bajirao Singham and Kareena is playing his love interest.
“We will shoot in Goa for 20 days. As the film is set in Mumbai, we will shoot the rest of the portion there. Only the village portion is being shot in Goa,” the director said.
Rohit made his directorial debut in 2003 with Zameen and in his eleven-year career in Bollywood, Rohit has delivered several hits, which have earned him the monikers of hit machine and 100 crore king.
“It is a compliment to have these phrases used for you but it is also a lot of pressure. People just expect me to make hit films and I have to constantly strive and work hard to deliver what is expected of me. But the love and adulation motivates me every single day to do better,” Rohit said.
After wrapping Singham Returns, Rohit will reunite with SRK for another film.
