The highlight of the police function in Mumbai last night was the launch of Rohit Shetty’s Singham 2, a film that brings together Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Just before the trio launched the sequel, a promo (made by Rohit) specially shot for the occasion played.
Cops spoke about their sense of pride when Singham (2011) released. The short film showed many policemen and lady constables fighting back tears as they recounted how their families started respecting their jobs much more after watching the film. Slightly embarrassed at some of their team-members’ emotional outbursts, senior officers seen in the film cleared the lump in their throats and spoke of how it felt good to wear khaki.
Says Kareena, “I’m looking forward to starting work on the film, which goes on floors in the first week of March. We will hit screens on August 15 (Independence Day) this year.
Like our police force, Singham 2 is an emotional journey for me too, as it means I will join Rohit and Ajay with whom I did two of the Golmaal films. Not to forget, Singham is a franchise that one is privileged to be associated with. The earlier film had its heart in the right place and that’s why it went on to become a calendar event for India.”
