Shetty's Police Universe or Police Cinematic Universe[1] 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.[2] The franchise will have another installment, Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar as Veer Sooryavanshi, another DCP.
