Shetty's Police Universe or Police Cinematic Universe is an Indian shared universe and media franchise created by Rohit Shetty consisting of films focusing on police officers. The first two films, Singham (2011) and Singham Returns (2014) focus on Bajirao Singham, an honest DCP who fights for justice. The third, Simmba (2018), focuses on Sangram "Simmba" Bhalerao, a corrupt Inspector from the same town as Bajirao, who takes advantage of his job. The franchise will have another installment, Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar as Veer Sooryavanshi, another DCP.
Singham Returns (2014)
The film is an adaption of the Telugu film Temper. It stars Ranveer Singh as Senior Police Inspector Sangram Bhalerao (Simmba), Sara Ali Khan as Shagun Sathe, and Sonu Sood as Durva Ranade. Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar appear in cameo appearances, with the former reprising his role of DCP Bajirao Singham, while the latter played another DCP named Veer Sooryavanshi. It was released on 28 December 2018.
The film will see Kumar reprising his role of DCP Veer Sooryavanshi, but in the lead role, with Katrina Kaif as Sooryavanshi's wife. Two first look posters, released in March 2019, confirmed the release date. It is slated to release on 27 March 2020.
