The social media went into a tizzy when reports broke out that Ranveer Singh would be stepping into the shoes of Akshay Kumar for the sequel of Singh Is Kinng. The rumours started after a report in Midday stated that filmmaker Shailendra Singh was keen on making the sequel. He even told the tabloid, “While we had initially wanted the title Singh Is Kinng, Vipul Shah refused to part with it. I have been asking him to return it to me for the last five years. Then, I decided to pick another name, because, the name Singh Is Bliing had also been explored. So, a similar sounding title would cause confusion.”
However as per reliable sources, Ranveer Singh’s Sher Singh might not be the sequel of Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is Kinng, but some other film. The source added that nobody can make a sequel except for Vipul Shah and UTV, who currently have the rights. So, we guess Shailendra Singh might just be making a random film called Sher Singh. He simply can’t make a sequel to Singh Is Kinng because he doesn’t have the rights, unless he plans to buy. If Ranveer Singh does sign on for Sher Singh, he will portray the character of a Sardar for the first time.

Apart from this, Ranveer Singh currently has three big films in his kitty. The first one, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is all set to hit the silver screens on December 1. Post that, he will start shooting of Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy along with Alia Bhatt and Kabir Khan’s Kapil Dev biopic, which is tentatively titled #83.
