Arjun Kapoor to play villain in ‘Singham Again’


Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor is confirmed to join the league of antagonists in Rohit Shetty’s much-anticipated cop action-drama, ‘Singham Again’. This film will be the third installment in the highly successful Singham franchise, with the eponymous original starring Ajay Devgn having set the box office on fire back in 2011, and its sequel, ‘Singham Returns’, replicating the success in 2014.

Merging into Shetty’s expansive cinematic universe of police dramas – which includes titles such as ‘Simmba’ (2018) featuring Ranveer Singh and ‘Sooryavanshi’ (2021) led by Akshay Kumar – ‘Singham Again’ promises to elevate the thrilling ride for its audience. The franchise is known for its gripping storytelling, high-octane action sequences, and charismatic leads, blending patriotism with raw cinematic energy.

Arjun Kapoor’s foray into the role of the villain marks a significant departure from his usual portfolio of characters and gives him an opportunity to showcase his range as an actor. His entry into the world of Singham was enthused by a warm social media exchange, where Ranveer Singh, himself a part of Shetty’s cop universe as Inspector Sangram ‘Simmba’ Bhalerao, shared the first look of Kapoor’s character on Instagram, ushering him into the fold with palpable excitement.

The reveal of Kapoor’s villainous avatar sparked great interest among cinema enthusiasts. The actor took to his Instagram account to share the news, radiant with the accomplishment of joining the ranks of Rohit Shetty’s cinematic dimension. His caption, “Singham ka villain! Feeling on top of the world being a part of hit-machine Rohit Shetty sir’s cop universe! I promise you there will be mayhem,” reflects both his pride and the promise of an intense spectacle in the upcoming film.

The vision of director Rohit Shetty expands further with ‘Singham Again’ as it is set to introduce new key players. Tiger Shroff is slated to appear as ACP Satya, while Deepika Padukone is cast as the formidable police officer, Shakti Shetty, dubbed “the most brutal and violent officer of our cop universe”. The inclusion of these two A-listers ups the ante, raising expectations of what is touted to be a larger-than-life face-off between good and evil.

Fans will be excited to learn that ‘Singham Again’ will also see the return of actress Kareena Kapoor Khan reprising her role as Avni Kamat from previous films in the series. Her character brought a balance of grounded reality and emotional depth to the otherwise testosterone-fueled milieu, winning the hearts of the audience.

The Singham series, under the aegis of Rohit Shetty, has been a potent blend of the director’s ability to deliver commercial successes and Ajay Devgn’s powerful screen presence. With the merging of Ranveer Singh’s Simmba and Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi into the narrative thread, along with the addition of new characters, ‘Singham Again’ is gearing up to be a colossal cinematic event.

The anticipation for ‘Singham Again’ is sky-high, with expectations set for it to continue the tradition of its predecessors: being crowd-pleasers that pack a punch, both in terms of narrative and box office numbers. Audiences are eager for the next chapter in Rohit Shetty’s universe, where justice is served with a fistful of action, heart-pounding chases, and an unwavering commitment to the valor of the police force.

Stay tuned as the world prepares for the clash of titans, where Devgn’s stoic Singham will be seen locking horns with Kapoor’s audacious villain. A showdown is on the horizon that promises to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. As the filming commences, cinephiles are already marking their calendars for the next big blockbuster of Indian cinema.
