While the Tamil film starred Surya in the lead role, the Hindi remake will star Rohit's best friend Ajay Devgn. The film is being produced by Reliance Big Pictures which had also co-produced the Tamil version.
Confirming the same, Rohit said, "Yes my next film is the remake of Singam and stars Ajay Devgn. Right now, I am too busy with the release of Golmaal 3 and have not finalised on the actress and other cast."
Considering Rohit's debut film as a director was an action film Zameen, it will be interesting to see how Rohit tackles this genre after a long hiatus.
After directing successful comedies like the Golmaal series and All The Best, Rohit Shetty will change tracks for his next venture and return to the action genre. Rohit's next after Golmaal 3 is an action-packed film, which is a remake of the 2010 Tamil smash-hit film Singam.
