Rohit Shetty: 'Cirkus Has The Golmaal & All the Best Feel'

Akash Bhatnagar

Today Rohit Shetty is known for his cop universe consisting of Singham, Simmba and Sooryavanshi. He is currently basking in the success of his latest directorial. But before he stepped into making these actioners, Rohit made some hilarious comedy films as well, some of whom I consider one of the best comedies to have come out of India, that includes the Golmaal franchise and my personal favourite All The Best. He is returning to comedy soon with Cirkus and I am really excited for that.

Having done so many films in diverse genres, one might wonder if Rohit Shetty, the director sees his films as a viewer, and the filmmaker shares that he does that only when it’s coming on TV and he is at home. But does he critique his films? He answers in the affirmative.

Here’s what he said:

“I do it with every film. You learn with each film and that happens with every director. You realise you could have changed this or that, and that is the learning experience that helps you grow, otherwise we wouldn’t have made Singham and just be happy with making the Golmaal and All The Best series. To grow, you need to analyse what went wrong or what could have been done better.”

Speaking of All The Best, I still consider it amongst the best films that Rohit has made and one of the best comedies made in Bollywood. So, I really want a sequel to that some day or maybe it getting turned into a franchise. But Rohit has a saddening yet hopeful answer for that.

Here’s what he said on the possibility of All The Best sequel:

“No, if I keep on doing that then I will be doing those films only. Although Cirkus has that feel. It’s not All The Best, but it has that first Golmaal and All the Best feels.”

Having loved Golmaal and All The Best, it really does increase my intrigue for Cirkus. Also, since it has Ranveer Singh, it already makes it hype-worthy with the successful duo of him and Rohit having Simmba’s success behind them. Cirkus also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde and Varun Sharma, and it is reportedly based on Shakespeare’s The Comedy Of Errors. If what Rohit says is true and Cirkus has the feel and vibe of those films, I would be a happy man going to the theatres for this one.
