Filmmaker Rohit Shetty says commercial films are dying as many people are scared to delve into that space. Shetty has interwoven the world of ‘Singham’, ‘Simmba’ and his upcoming film ‘Sooryavanshi’, creating his own “cop universe”.
Many people are scared to make commercial films: Rohit Shetty
Rohit said, “Commercial films are dying. There are very few filmmakers who are making commercial films. Many people are scared to make commercial films… We need to bring something new every time when you make a commercial film. When we did ‘Simmba’, we had this thought that let’s bring ‘Singham’ and ‘Sooryavanshi’ in it and create a start of making our universe. We were scared that if ‘Simmba’ goes wrong then the brand which I am making with ‘Singham’ will go wrong.”
