- Singh Is Kinng's sequel is titled Sher Singh
- Ranveer Singh may feature in the film
- Singh is Kinng featured Akshay Kumar in the lead role
Of his upcoming film, Shailendra Singh said, "Bollywood doesn't have an iconic superhero. Sher Singh will be that character. He does not have super powers, but will be an extraordinary human being," reports mid-day.
Shailendra Singh also said that he thinks Ranveer can be an excellent sardar. Of him he told mid-day: "Ranveer has all the characteristics needed to play a sardar, just like Akshay (Singh Is Kinng) and Ajay Devgn ( Son Of Sardaar ) do. I narrated the story to him in one line about a month-and-a-half ago, and discussed his look too. He expressed interest in the project and asked me for a 10-page script, which I will send him this week."
Shailendra Singh seems excited about the role of the protagonist in the film. "I will tell you one thing - Sher Singh ordinary hai, lekin kaam extraordinary karta hai," mid-day quoted Shailendra Singh as saying.
Singh is Kinng was a 2008 comedy drama, directed by Anees Bazmee, which starred Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. Akshay Kumar was also nominated for the Asian Film Awards in the Best Actor category for his performance in the film. Singh is Kinng was a hit at the Box Office.
Well, this is not the first time. Before Singh Is Kinng, Shailendra Singh had to bend the knee when he wanted to make Namastey London sequel with Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor. He renamed the film Namastey Canada.
Ranveer Singh is currently awaiting the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much-awaited film Padmavati. Ranveer will portray the role of Alauddin Khilji while Deepika Padukone will feature as Rani Padmavati and Shahid will star as Rawal Ratan Singh. Ranveer also has a biopic based on cricketer Kapil Dev titled '83, in the pipeline.
