Here’s a shocking piece of news! One of the most awaited release of upcoming year, 2014, Singham 2 has been postpone! Yes, the sequel to the 2011-superhit movie has been pushed for a further release. The super-cop movie was earlier expected to release on August 15, 2014, to cash in the patriotic theme of the movie.
While reason for delay of most of the movie is economical, ‘Singham 2’ has been delayed for an entirely different reason. The ‘Chennai Express’ director, Rohit Shetty who was to direct the honest cop saga has been offered to host the next season of the hit realty show, ‘Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi’. And to host the fifth season of the show, the macho director will have to fly to Argentina in February-March session.
Affecting Rohit’s sudden decision of hosting the action reality show will be the shooting of ‘Singham 2’. It was earlier scheduled to roll in January but will now flag off in April in Mumbai, not being able to release as scheduled.
However, Rohit isn’t to be solely blamed for this. The decision is a mutual one. As per reports, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Action Jackson’ which was to complete its shooting by the end of this year is facing some delay as well. Few crucial portions of the Prabhu Deva directorial has still not been shot and the film will be wrapped up by January-end now.
So, it now looks like a logical step by the action-comedy director. By the time, he will come back from Argentina, his superstar friend will be ready to belt out corruption in ‘Singham 2’. The Ajay-Rohit duo is definitely a smart team, no?
