According to a Bollywood hungama report, Ranveer Singh will join the cast of Rohit Shetty’s Singham Again starring Ajay Devgn. An industry insider told the portal, "The reason for Akshay's absence is not known yet. It's certainly the case of the script not warranting his presence. Of course, the script is in the nascent stage at the moment and the team is working towards developing it by the day. It's possible that the final draft gets him back, but at this point in time, the first draft doesn't have Akshay Kumar in it.
The source further informs, "Rohit doesn't want to force all characters in one film. While the script seamlessly brings Simmba to the conflict, he wants to bring in Sooryavanshi only if the situation warrants it. Who knows, maybe he returns to the cop universe in the end credit scene."
Singham Again is slated to go on floors in April 2023. It stars Devgn with Singh and Deepika Padukone. The movie will be released in 2024.
