Blockbuster director Rohit Shetty, the maker of hit cop franchise Singham, revealed that he is apparently working on a script for “a lady Singham”.

Cited by Pinkvilla, Picturez during a media interaction said, that in wake of female empowerment and gender equality, soon there will be a female Singham movie.
“We are planning, it is being planned, we are working on the script for a lady Singham, just like we made ‘Singham’ and now are making Simmba. It will take a lot of time, we are planning and working on creating an environment where there is a women character, who is also a cop.
The germ or thought is there to create this whole cop universe; we will make a film that will have a lady cop. And we will add a lady cop in our ‘Little Singham’ too,” said Rohit.
Shetty has frequently worked with Ajay Devgn, but currently, he is busy shooting for action-drama Simmba which stars Ranveer Singh and marks the debut of Sara Ali Khan, produced by Karan Johar.
About collaborating with Ajay in future, he said: “There are so many franchises, Singham and Golmaal, so we are planning which one to make, so definitely either one of them will be made, Singham or Golmaal. Maybe I will make something else with Ajay Devgn. Everything is in discussion phase right now.”
With regards to Little Singham, Rohit said that it is something at a very different level. “There is a lot of aspiration value in ‘Little Singham’, especially for kids.
The good thing about animation is that you can put everything in it, all your thoughts. The team has created something which is on a different level, in terms of action, and kids will enjoy it. I am waiting for kids to see it and react.”
Little Singham, inspired by the Ajay Devgn hit film series Singham, is an original kid’s content series in India and will be aired in four languages – English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu – on TV from April 20.
