It began with Singham in 2011 and Singham Returns in 2014 and focused on Bajirao Singham, an honest DCP who beats the shit out of the thugs and goons.
Then, there was Simmba in 2018 which focused on Sangram “Simmba” Bhalerao who was the polar opposite of Bajirao Singham and was a corrupt officer who uses his power and position to benefit himself. Things change around at the end of the movie, however.
Now, Rohit Shetty has added another franchise to his Police Cinematic Universe with Sooryavanshi which stars Akshay Kumar as Veer Sooryavanshi, another DCP but who is based in Mumbai.
2011 Singham‘s was the Hindi remake of the Tamil movie Singam. 2014’s Singham Returns was inspired by the Malayalam movie Ekalavyan. 2018’s Simmba is an adaptation of the Telugu film, Temper and in 2022, we’ll be getting a third Singham film which will have Devgn reprising his previous roles.
Katrina Kaif plays Akshay Kumar’s wife in 2020’s Sooryavanshi.
